Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Three new projects funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) explore libraries’ roles in emerging technologies and their potential impact on communities. Team members will provide an overview of their projects followed by an open discussion on the merits of these projects. Featured projects include Libraries Leading with TV WhiteSpace (Kristen Rebmann for the San Jose State University iSchool); Local Open Civic Data Ecosystems (Toby Greenwalt for the joint project between Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh Library System); and Blockchain Technology as a Community Anchor (Sandy Hirsh and Sue Alman for the San Jose State University iSchool).
