Models for Future Library Services

Event Type: FLW Statewide Webinars

Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Time: 11:30 AM
 Libraries have organized their activities and services around the codex the printed book for several hundred years. E-books and other digitized material have made that service model outmoded and on its way to being obsolete. If we want to stay relevant as an institution, libraries need to find a new model.

In this fast paced one-hour webinar, Al Carlson explores multiple “future models” for libraries, including some already taking shape today, and challenges you to rethink what your library will be doing in five years.

Location: Web Based Training

 Al Carlson has been working in libraries since 1959, professionally since 1970. During that time he has watched technology go from non-existent to all encompassing. And libraries have consistently been behind the curve.

His goal now is to help libraries play like Wayne Gretzky, and “Skate to where the puck will be, not to where it’s been.”

His career has included public service, tech services, automation, and management at public, school, academic and special libraries.
