If you’re at the 2009 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago this week, be sure to check out the Washington Office Breakout Session I: “The Future of Libraries.” The panel will take place Saturday 10:30am – noon at McCormick Place Rm. W-194a.
What will libraries look like in 5, 10, or 20 years? What are the major trends in technology and society that will shape future libraries? What are cutting-edge products, services, and practices that can be found in today’s libraries? Come to this session to learn about these diverse perspectives on the future of libraries and offer your thoughts to the Program on America’s Libraries for the 21st Century of ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP).
