Free Webcast: The Future of Library Technology

July 5, 2011

LJ Webcast Library Journal and Ex Libris are sponsoring a Free Webcast: “The Future of Library Technology: How Trends in Scholarly Communication and Technology are Impacting Academic Libraries.”

Thursday, July 7, 2011 from 12:00-1:00 EDT.

Even though the event is free, you must still register for the event.  Registration is available online.

Information about the event taken from the website:

Few libraries today develop the 5-10 year strategic plans they once did due to the dynamic environments within academic and research libraries. In this webinar, Jack Ammerman, Associate University Librarian for Digital Initiatives and Open Access at Boston University Libraries, will discuss ways in which shifting user needs and expectations as well as trends in the scholarly and technology worlds have effected planning for library technology at BU. Oren Beit-Arie, Chief Strategy Officer at Ex Libris, will review the ways in which Ex Libris has and is responding to these trends with specific examples from the next generation library services Primo and Alma.

Panelists:
Jack Ammerman, Associate University Librarian for Digital Initiatives and Open Access at Boston University Libraries
Oren Beit-Arie, Chief Strategy Officer at Ex Libris
