CILIP Conference 2019 - Digital innovation - Andy Tattersall

Technology has all the answers – but we have to start thinking about whether we’re asking the right questions
Technology disruption has impacted on the library and information profession more than most organisation sectors. It has created a wealth of opportunities to improve how we carry out our work, it has also brought with it a lot of threats and highlighted weaknesses. We now have a myriad of digital tools to help us help others but do we know what they really want given the wide choice of solutions? Within the learning technology community they never stray too far away from pedagogical theory as to why a technology is adopted to help with teaching. Library and information specialists need to take leaf from that book and ask questions when adopting a new tool for teaching, research and dissemination.
