We’ve already given you a sneak peek to Dr. Bill Brennan, our Thursday evening speaker, who will be presenting 3 Trends That Define the Future of Education: Innovation Labs, Makerspaces and Learning Commons.
Here is a preview into two of the speakers’ presentations for our Friday, October 21st full-day event:
Tom Jacobson, Principal Consultant, Third Chapter Partners will address Marketing the Value of Your Library:New Technologies, Practices, and Privacy.
There is a new generation of marketing technologies that libraries can use to better understand their digital users and improve those users’ experiences. They enable libraries to engage them in a much more personalized manner. These activities can raise questions regarding data requirements and management, privacy, and proper use. This session will explore this new functionality and the issues that libraries will face as they begin to use these new technologies
Kerri Willette, Deputy Director and Empire State Digital Network Manager from METRO, will present DPLA: Impact on Libraries.
Empire State Digital Network (ESDN), the New York State service hub for the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), is administered by the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) in partnership with the Empire State Library Network. Together, partners from around the state collaborate to contribute digital resources from hundreds of New York collecting institutions to DPLA.
