TechForum 2005: Looking at Dead & Emerging Technologies

Firmly in the knowledge age, organizations and communities are striving to become learning organizations and centers, and librarians are extending their reach and becoming more critical to the transfer. Our popular “dead technology” session focuses this year on those technologies that will, and will not, allow us to transfer knowledge to our clients in easy, cost-effective, and relevant ways. This session features some new views as well as some of our long-term Computers in Libraries experts, pioneers, and practitioners. It is free and open to all registrants, exhibitors, and exhibit visitors. Come and hear our panel’s predictions of future-challenged technologies as they praise and condemn available and emerging technologies.
