Topic: Emerging Tech Trends in Libraries

Technology has changed the face of libraries and is continuing to change how we work and how we deliver services to customers. This presentation focuses on emerging technology trends, and how those trends are re-shaping library services. Examples of incorporating emerging trends into libraries are provided.

Attendees will leave knowing what trends to look for, the difference between a technology trend and a fad, and will have ideas on how their library can respond to emerging technology.

David Lee King is the Digital Services Director at Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library, where he plans, implements, and experiments with emerging technology trends. He speaks internationally about emerging trends, website management, digital experience, and social media, and has been published in many library-related journals. David is a Library Journal Mover and Shaker. His newest book is Face2Face: Using Facebook, Twitter, and Other Social Media Tools to Create Great Customer Connections. David blogs at
