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 won't be able to attend, and many who do will find themselves spread too thin to attend every technology-related event they might want to.
We're happy to announce that we're continuing our free, conference-wrapping Webinars with The ALA TechSource Midwinter Tech Wrapup. Our expert panel will present their observations and analysis of the top technology trends from the conference, and what they see as the implications for libraries.
This year's panel features four regular contributors to ALA TechSource:
- Jason Griffey, Head of Library Information Technology, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, and blogger for ALA TechSource and American Libraries
- Kate Sheehan, Open Source Implementation Coordinator, Bibliomation Inc., and ALA TechSource blogger
- Marshall Breeding, Director for Innovative Technologies and Research, Vanderbilt University Libraries, Library Automation Writer and Expert
- Tom Peters, Director of TAP Information Services and TechSource Blogger
