Merchandise Description

Trends, Changes, and Innovation​
Virtual Conference

The future of libraries - and the innovations that will get us there - are not disconnected from the realities we see in our day-to-day lives. Trends and changes provide much of the starting material and evidence that can inform our future work and transformation. Whether changes in technology, the configurations of public spaces, the shapes of information, or the composition and self-identification of communities, committing to intentionally monitoring signals of change provides us with a valuable lead in envisioning our futures. The signals for the future arrive as inbound change, but we build our future
through outbound change.
