My presentation in Edinburgh for the European Innovative Users Group held at Queen Margaret University June 16.
In this talk we explore what questions for library systems some new technology areas spark as we prepare for the next stage – smart watches, driverless cars, Amazon streaming music, virtual reality, discovery by location, smart buildings.
The suite of technologies providing opportunities is widening alongside of the amazing growth in the world of technologies. And the power of the future library will rest upon the librarians and their tech partners. The library services platform are increasingly the fulcrum. It’s a great day to be in libraries.
What a great, helpful, group of European Innovative librarians. The hosts were amazing (Thank you George and Emma!) and the venue was perfect.
Thank you big time to the Innovative team.
