International Perspectives

I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to travel overseas to see firsthand how libraries worldwide make use of technology, learning about companies and products not well known in the United States. The realm of library technologies encompasses an interesting mix of internationally-oriented companies with products deployed throughout the world and others that focus on specific regions or countries. Interesting and innovative technologies can be seen in either context, making it worthwhile to stay abreast of developments internationally as well as domestically. Even if some of the specific products may not be available to readers in the United States, it is always helpful to be aware of the broadest array of possibilities.
