Future Prep
by Brandi Scardilli

It may be summer in our part of the world—a time to relax and rejuvenate while the days are long and the weather’s nice—but Information Today is aiming to keep you informed on what’s coming your way. Anthony Aycock provides a list of websites, books, and videos that will help you prep for the next election (page 12). Nancy Herther discusses the evolving landscape of public meeting legislation now that so many states have made videoconferencing part of that civic process (page 21). George Pike looks at Twitter under possible new owner Elon Musk (page 24). And David Haden explores the emerging field of picture AI (page 30).

When it comes to the future, I think I can speak for info pros when I say that equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) should become ingrained in every organizational strategic plan and company culture. Marci Wicker interviews JJ Pionke on how libraries can evaluate their spaces to better serve patrons with disabilities, especially invisible ones (page 18), Dom Bortruex speaks with Ione Damasco about how people can work toward inclusive excellence at their institution (page 19), and Gwen Gregory looks at how libraries should serve neurodivergent patrons (page 16).

Happy Reading,Brandi Scardilli
