The Upstate New York Chapter of SLA Presents:
A day with Stephen Abram
Friday – April 27, 2007
Kate Gleason Auditorium
Bausch & Lomb Public Library Building, Rochester Central Library
The social web is coming fast and it’s BIG! What are the skills and competencies that Library 2.0 will need?
Come and hear what Web 2.0 is and the adaptations we’ll need to make to thrive in the future. Are we focusing on the real end user’s needs?
Are we serving our users in the world that will be or the one that was? The new user is different, very different. This workshop will define and explore the current state of this world and then facilitate a brainstorming session of the potential for these tools in your enterprise. Be prepared to listen, learn, work and participate.
Stephen Abram, MLS a library futurist and president-elect of SLA, will run us through the changes that are being wrought on today’s roller-coaster! He will then lead our groups through valuable discussions and learning to bring these back and apply the learning in our organization context.
