NCompass Live: Tech Talk with Michael Sauers: Live from Computers in Libraries! The Next (Big) Thing - Online 


NOTE! This episode of NCompass Live is being held at a special time! This week's show will be held from 2:15pm - 3:00pm Central Time.

This episode of Tech Talk will be broadcast live from the Computers in Libraries 2012 conference in Washington, DC. Usually, in this monthly feature of NCompass Live, the NLC’s Technology Innovation Librarian, Michael Sauers, discusses recent tech news. But this month we have something special for you. We are proud to bring you a live broadcast of one of the conference sessions!

The Next (Big) Thing
Sometimes, it can be most helpful just to hear what libraries are thinking of doing next, as well as visions of the next BIG thing. A small panel of BIG thinkers share brief thoughts on what the BIG things for libraries will be in the next few years, then participants share their institutions’ plans for next week, next month, and next year. Have your notepad or mobile device of choice ready to jot down potential collaborators.
