People watching with a purpose meeting needs before they need it by Soaring to Excellence( Visual )

Taking an asset-based, grassroots view, librarians and library educators advocate using a community informatics model toward library services, where significant engagement can happen. In this program, we discuss this paradigm shift, why it's so necessary, and what it looks like in the real world

Are these trends? Just fads? Plain old Folly? We'll deal with a central question in this teleconference: To what extent do Libraries need to quickly adopt new technologies into their programs?
