TechTrends: Mid-Winter 2010

Submitted by Daniel A. Freeman on January 28, 2010 - 9:19am

The ALA Midwinter meeting provides a fantastic opportunity to reflect on how technology is continuing to transform the library world. Between the exhibition floor and the variety of technology-related events, the conference can provide attendees with an overview of where library technology is, and where it may be going. Of course, for various reasons, many librarians weren't able to attend, and many who did found themselves spread too thin to attend every technology-related event they might have wanted to. 

ALA TechSource is proud to present TechTrends: Mid-Winter 2010, a webinar to analyze and discuss the Midwinter meeting from a library technology perspective. Our panel of experts (including two of our own TechSource bloggers) will each offer their own unique perspective, sharing what they’ve learned from the conference and what trends they think stood out. Participants will also have a chance to participate in a question-and-answer session with the panelists.

Our panel includes:

  • Jason Griffey, Head of Library Information Technology, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, and ALA TechSource and American Libraries blogger
  • Kate Sheehan, Open Source Implementation Coordinator, Bibliomation Inc., and ALA TechSource blogger
  • Greg Landgraf, Associate Editor,
    American Libraries
  • Sean Fitzpatrick, Associate Editor,
    American Libraries

Please join us for this exciting event on Thursday, February 11th at 4:00pm Eastern (3:00 Central, 1:00 Pacific)!
