This first event in the METRO / ACRL/NY New Professionals Series features a conversation with Eli Neiburger, Associate Director for IT & Production at the Ann Arbor District Library and member of the 2011 Class of Library Journal Movers & Shakers.
Eli's presentation for Library Journal's ebooks: Libraries at the Tipping Point summit in 2010, which became widely know as the "libraries are screwed" talk, imagines a future in which libraries are more than just another access point for reading material. Join us to hear from one of the field's most respected futurists on how libraries can and must adapt to an increasingly digital future. This session promises lots of good advice for professionals who are new to the field on what they can do to ensure that libraries thrive in the coming decades.
Who should attend:
Librarians new to the field, LIS students, and anyone interested in learning more about the future of librarianship
Log-in information will be distributed to all registrants via email 1-3 days prior to the webinar. All registrants will have access to the archived recording of the webinar within a week after the live session.
