Our webinar, TechTrends: Midwinter 2010, was a huge success! We had some great presentations and some lively discussion. We tackled some exciting topics. Just to name a few:
- Vendor presence at the webinar--who was there and, just as importantly, who wasn't there.
- Exciting new eBook platforms/software and their potential for libraries
- Augmented reality
- Mobile PACs and library mobile services in general
- Discovery systems
- Libraries adopting open source software
- FourSquare and its potential for libraries
Discussion wove in and out of these and other topics, and we wrapped up with a vibrant Q&A. Discussion on twitter (#TTWebinar) was also lively.
We want to extend a special thanks to everyone who attended, and give a special thanks to presnters Sean Fitzpatrick, Jason Griffey, Greg Landgraf and Kate Sheehan, and to our sponsor the SirsiDynix Institute, as well as co-sponsors LITA and American Libraries.
We will be posting an archive of the webinar to our website in the next few weeks, and will be sure to announce that posting on this blog and on Twitter.
