Technology has changed the face of libraries, and is continuing to change how we work and how we deliver services to customers. This workshop introduces emerging technology trends, and how those trends are re-shaping library services. Examples of how to incorporate these emerging trends into libraries are provided. Attendees learn what trends to look for, the differences between a trend and a fad, and will have ideas on how their library can respond to emerging technology.
