The College and University Libraries Section (CULS) & Library Technologies Roundtable will co-host a half-day pre-conference program that will focus on the use of rapidly changing information technologies in libraries. The pre-conference, sub-titled “Showcasing Our Achievements and Gazing into the Future”, aims to celebrate wonderful achievements, discuss how to tackle on-going challenges, and explore numerous opportunities in this area. Despite great successes realized by libraries in Tennessee, moving at the same pace as that of advancements in information technologies has never been easy for librarians, both in implementing new technologies as well as learning new skill sets to succeed in providing user-driven library services. We are planning to organize a half-day pre-conference, which could include a presentation(s) and a panel discussion, reflecting on key successes and failures, highlighting present-day challenges, and exploring various opportunities regarding library and IT.
