Power-up at TBLC’s NEW 2018 Technology Conference!

We’ve walked the digital divide, gotten lost in the cloud, and made our reality virtual – so what’s next? Join us for a day of interactive breakouts where you’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills and catch up on some ever-changing tech trends. We’ll spend our day looking ahead to the latest and greatest ways libraries are bringing technology and support to their communities.

Our keynote speaker for this conference is David Lee King with a presentation on Emerging Technology Trends for Libraries

Technology has changed the face of libraries, and is continuing to change how we work and how we deliver services to customers. This presentation focuses on emerging technology trends, and how those trends are re-shaping library services. Examples of incorporating emerging trends into libraries are provided.
Attendees will leave knowing what trends to look for, the difference between a technology trend and a fad, and will have ideas on how their library can respond to emerging technology.

David Lee King is the Digital Services Director at Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library, where he plans, implements, and experiments with emerging technology trends. He speaks internationally about emerging trends, social media, websites and libraries, and has been published in many library-related journals. David is a Library Journal Mover and Shaker. He has written two books: Face2Face: Using Facebook, Twitter, and Other Social Media Tools to Create Great Customer Connections, and Designing the Digital Experience: How to Use Experience Design Tools & Techniques to Build Websites Customers Love.
