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 so thin that they cannot attend some of the technology-related events.
We're happy to announce that we're continuing our free, conference-wrapping webinars with The 2012 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.
We're excited to have a fantasic 3-person panel for this event, which will take place on Monday, January 30th at 1pm Eastern/Noon Cental/11am Mountain/10am Pacific:
- Jason Griffey, Head of Library Information Technology, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, and blogger for ALA TechSource.
