NCompass Live: What in the World Is Emerging Technology? - Online 


We all know that technology trends are moving at light speed. The truth is that many of these trends are here one day and gone the next. Most of this technology also isnít particularly relevant to the library world. This presentation will dive into how to identify emerging technology that might make an impact on libraries, now or in the future. Tune in if you want to learn more about the following topics:

  • What is Emerging Technology?
  • What are some examples of emerging tech?
  • How is this tech applicable to libraries?
  • What might library patrons want to know about emerging tech?
  • What can we tell interested patrons about these tech trends?
We will dive deeper into this topic on March 13 during a presentation about the Ethics Behind Emerging Technology.

Presenter: Amanda Sweet, Technology Innovation Librarian, Nebraska Library Commission.
