The Technology Horizon

June 24, 2011

As librarians we are continually scanning the horizon to discover new concepts and technology for our spaces.  Our focus in this area should not only be identifying the latest technology and programs but also creating sustainable partnerships with individuals and academic areas that can help us utilize new technology for the benefit of our students, faculty, staff, and the community.  These collaborative efforts drive our provision of resources and affect our research and educational environment.

So, how do we identify new trends and assess their usefulness?  Well, we read technology blogs, columns, reports, and subscribe to listservs.  Here are just a few Web sites you might find helpful in your search for new technology trends.

    The Educause Horizon Report gave me (what I think) is a good idea. I probably wouldn’t have caught it if you didn’t post it. Thanks for the great info!
