Emerging Technology Trends for Libraries (High Point)

Event Details:
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 will leave knowing what trends to look for, the difference between a technology trend and a fad, and will have new ideas on how their library can respond to emerging technology.

These workshops will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with time included to eat lunch on your own. There is no charge to attend these events. (We are no longer allowed to provide lunches or snacks at workshops, so please bring any snacks or liquids you may need with you.)

TNT will be able to offer .6 CEUs for workshop attendees.
