Collaborators for the Future: Values, Trends, and Our Changing World
How do we think about the future? As something for someone else to worry about? As something that will happen to us, not with us? Over the past three years, ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries has learned that thinking about the future starts when we activate our minds to look for signals and trends outside of our immediate environments – and then think about those trends in light of our professional values and the values we seek to provide to our communities. Attendees will take some of the trend scanning from the Center for the Future of Libraries – as well as their own community insights and evidence – and consider positive innovations for the futures of their own libraries.
