Oct: The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries

The 4th annual online event is back with a dynamic new format, featuring programming designed to take libraries into the future to better serve their community’s evolving needs.
The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries will offer thought-provoking discussions and actionable solutions to some of the biggest challenges libraries are facing, including rethinking collections, engaging the community, and helping students and patrons learn. The program will feature insights on managing new technologies and services; the latest developments in ebooks and streaming media; optimizing discovery; and much more!
Our expert speakers and panelists will present innovative ideas and actionable solutions for and from libraries of all types – school, academic, and public.
Program tracks will focus on three key areas:
 Community: Programming, Support, and Resource Sharing
 Instruction: Helping Students and Patrons Learn
 New Collections, New Content: Beyond the Container
This free, full-day online event will feature a thought-provoking keynote from professor, anthropologist, and author Mimi Ito; a forward-looking panel of thought leaders from the DPLA, Hathi Trust, Gates Library Foundation, IMLS, and ALA; and a Who’s Who of library professionals from across the US and Canada.
