Get “Information Tomorrow” Today

Any dis­cus­sion of the future of libraries must con­sider the impact of the tech­no­log­i­cal advances and inno­va­tions that are inex­tri­ca­bly wound up with library oper­a­tions and user expec­ta­tions. Accord­ing to Rachel Singer Gor­don, librar­i­ans remain rel­e­vant and use­ful by con­fronting tech­no­log­i­cal chal­lenges head-on and find­ing ways to inte­grate the best and most appro­pri­ate inno­va­tions into library ser­vices and operations.

In Infor­ma­tion Tomor­row, Gor­don brings together 20 of today’s lead­ing thinkers on the inter­sec­tions between libraries and tech­nol­ogy. They address var­i­ous ways in which new tech­nolo­gies influ­ence librar­i­ans’ actions and goals and offer ideas for using tech­nol­ogy to meet patrons where they are. The result is an engag­ing, wide-ranging, and some­times provoca­tive dis­cus­sion for sys­tems librar­i­ans, library IT work­ers, library man­agers and admin­is­tra­tors, and any­one work­ing with or inter­ested in tech­nol­ogy in libraries.”

I’m hon­ored to have authored one of the chap­ters in this book, both because of Rachel’s vision and because of the qual­ity of my fel­low authors. Learn more (and order a copy) here.
