Stephen Abram is amongst the most influential thought leaders in libraries. Take a look at this video to see why. I sat down with Stephen along the San Antonio riverwalk during the Texas Library Association conference to chat about opportunities for libraries, challenges and strategies for getting to our futures, and exciting library initiatives.
Leadership strategies, big picture elements of short term plans in long term contexts, our upending models, the introduction of embeddables and knowledge, new factors in the information landscape, predictive information and wearables.

I was in San Antonio at the Texas Library Association conference to give a few talks; One presentation was about technology trends of note to academic libraries and the other was on library innovation and futures.
