Participants will gain skills in identifying
emerging technologies that will impact library services. Attendees
will develop practical tools to prepare for and optimize these new
technologies using a new planning process taught through lecture
and discussion and demonstrated through model building and manipulation,
case study, and group activities. In addition to gaining a clearer
understanding of how technology impacts library activities, participants
will also learn strategies for integrating transformational technologies
into the library's mission and goals.
