Thanks to all the great folks at the Ohio Library Council. I had a wonderful time in Dayton. My talk:
Adopt or Adapt: Approaches to Emerging Tech and Trends
Presenter: Michael Stephens, San Jose State University
There’s no doubt about it. Library Information Science has become a technology-driven field. Information technology is impacting every industry right now, and libraries are no different. Note the influx of job descriptions for emerging tech librarians, user experience specialists, and others who guide technology-focused projects and departments. But, emerging tech is just one part of the bigger picture. The best librarians will be creative, fearless, and curious about everything. Even if you’re not an early adopter of the latest technology trends, this session will explore how to be an early adaptor.
