"Emerging Technologies: Tips and Strategies for Success in Libraries"

Date& Time:July 18th, 2012, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Description: Emerging technologies have become an ever-present part of our academic lives. From communicating with library supporters to providing resources for distance learners, educators must think about the tools we use and how we use them. What do we use? How? Why? These are some of the questions that constantly present themselves as we wade through the pool of emerging technologies. For libraries that do not have staff dedicated to digital initiatives, deciding on which tools to use and how to effectively use them can be challenging. This session aims to provide practical insight into understanding emerging technologies and tips for identifying and implementing relevant tools and services.

Presenter: Roy Cummings is a Reference Librarian at the Robert W. Woodruff Library of the Atlanta University Center in Atlanta, Georgia. He earned his Bachelors degree in Communication and Media Studies from Clayton State University in Morrow, GA; and Masters in Library Science from the University of North Texas. His interests include exploring and learning about emerging web technologies and electronic gadgets.

We'll examine what makes libraries work at the most basic levels, and how our jobs, right now, have the potential to create a foundation for a stunningly vibrant future for libraries and the communities they serve. Come ponder concepts like need, desire, human nature, society and technology and leave more inspired about your work and your life as an information professional.
