Library Journal Webcast Covers Exciting Trends Unveiled at Library 2.014


Hyperlinked library services, maker movements, and emerging technology were
just a few of the trending topics at the recent Library 2.014 Worldwide
Virtual Conference. The conversation continues on Oct. 30, 2014, when
Library Journal presents a special webcast featuring a panel of Library
2.014 conference presenters.   


Sponsored by the San Jose State University (SJSU) School of Information
<http://ischool.sjsu.edu/about> , Follett Corporation, and the Center for
International Scholarship in School Libraries at Rutgers, the free webcast
will be moderated by Dr. Michael Stephens
<https://ischoolapps.sjsu.edu/facultypages/view.php?fac=stephensm> , an
assistant professor at the SJSU iSchool. Panelists include Samantha Adams
Becker of the New Media Consortium; Susan Hildreth, director of the
Institute of Museum and Library Services; and Ayyoub Ajmi of the University
of Missouri, Kansas City Law Library. 


“We are really excited to be partnering on this takeaway webcast on the
heels of the Library 2.014 Virtual Conference,” said Rebecca T. Miller,
editorial director of Library Journal and School Library Journal. “We hope
it will extend the conversation regarding key ideas that are gaining more
and more traction in the library world—such as the rise of participatory
librarianship and continuous services enabled by our increasingly
interconnected digital world. And, who better to help mine the ideas of the
day than this powerhouse roster of panelists led by Michael Stephens?” 


Stephens was one of the distinguished speakers at the Library 2.014
conference, giving a presentation entitled, “Finding Balance: Reflective
Practice and the Profession.” In addition to moderating the Library Journal
session, he will discuss participatory, hyperlinked library services in
today’s connected global community. Becker will be talking about the role of
emerging technology in academic and research libraries. Hildreth will be
speaking about how libraries are becoming local learning hubs in in the wake
of maker movements and the focus on STEM education in schools. For Ajmi,
“the post-conference recap is just another opportunity to share and learn.”
He will further discuss the innovative ways the University of Missouri has
been using Google Glass. 


Technology was an important theme in the Library 2.014 Virtual Worldwide
Conference, and for information professionals like Ajmi, it is an essential
part of professional development in order to stay abreast of innovative
practices in the field of information science. “I think it's a must for any
information professional to keep up with emerging technologies,” he
explained, “as it is the only means for us to remain competitive and
relevant to our stakeholders in a changing environment.”


Library Journal will be hosting the free post-conference webcast on
Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014, from 12-1 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. The webcast
will also be recorded and archived for on-demand viewing after the event.
