Emerging Technologies: Tips and Strategies for Success in Libraries, presented by Roy Cummings
Presented by Roy Cummings, July 18th, 2012
Emerging technologies have become an ever-present part of our academic lives. From communicating with library supporters to providing resources for distance learners, educators must think about the tools we use and how we use them. What do we use? How? Why? These are some of the questions that constantly present themselves as we wade through the pool of emerging technologies. For libraries that do not have staff dedicated to digital initiatives, deciding on which tools to use and how to effectively use them can be challenging. This session aims to provide practical insight into understanding emerging technologies and tips for identifying and implementing relevant tools and services. Roy is a Reference Librarian at the Robert W. Woodruff Library of the Atlanta University Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
