"The Relevance of Libraries in a Digital Age: Library Challenges & Opportunities"
Speaker: James G. Neal
Cost: Free to Library Staff of Oregon Libraries
Date: Friday, May 11, 2007, 9:00a-10:30 a.m.
Description of Training:
James G. Neal, the Vice President for Information Services and University Librarian at Columbia University, will assemble a panel to discuss the future relevance of libraries as we know them. The digital age has been with us long enough to make some practical predictions of how traditional roles of libraries will change in information selection, acquisition, synthesis, navigation, dissemination, interpretation and archiving. New responsibilities in information aggregation, publishing education, research and development and policy advocacy will be explored. It promises to be a lively and provocative session. See the webcast description (http://www.dupagepress.com/COD/index.php?id=1244) for additional information.
