As part of the Emerging Tech Trends series, this webinar continues the exploration into emerging technology trends and tipping points, and how these trends are re-shaping library services. Join David Lee King on March 1, 2016, as he expertly guides you through examples of how you might incorporate these emerging trends into your library. Some of the topics covered that were not covered in previous webinars include: grassroots technology (makerspaces & digital media labs), payment systems (credit and debit card processing, new forms of payment), drones, mobile apps, web & social media changes and how to tell the difference between a trend and a fad.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
Be familiar with emerging technology trends and know what trends to look for
Know the difference between a technology trend and a fad
Be familiar with how emerging technologies affect libraries
Know how their library can respond to emerging technology
This third in a series of four webinar will be of interest to anyone working with technology in libraries, library workers interested in emerging technology, and library staff who help patrons with technology-related questions.
