“You are the Future” Alliance Library System Trendy Topics, Webcast.
Abstract: The future is bright for librarians, but not if we continue chasing trends and focusing on artifacts over knowledge and learning. This presentation looks at the future of librarians and their role in libraries and beyond in the future. We must shape the future starting today, and that future is about and by you, not your buildings or collections or institutions. You are part of an ongoing conversation about improving our communities through knowledge that has lasted over three thousand years…what do you have to say?
