Featured presentation I gave about Surviving Rapid Tech Change at the Alabama Library Convention in Birmingham/Hoover, Alabama on April 26, 2012.

Program Description:
Libraries are constantly inundated with new technologies. This session covers the top tech areas to watch so we can be librarian rock stars in the information arena. Hear about the most important tech trends, how they are impacting libraries and the services that we provide, and how to implement them right away.
