Librarians know that the target of keeping technologically current is always moving, and budgets are static at best.  Each year, College of DuPage teleconferences dedicates one program that takes a look at future technology trends and gives librarians an important basis for their planning efforts.  Libraries are both adopters and innovators, and are increasingly looking beyond the library environment for technological innovations and solutions.  

This teleconference will address the current status of technology in the library and explore future technological trends as more information sources--and people-- migrate to online environments. Eric Lease Morgan, Head of the Digital Access and Information Architecture Department, University Libraries of Notre Dame, and Marshall Breeding, Director for Innovative Technologies and Research for the Jean and Alexander Heard Library at Vanderbilt University and Executive Director of the Vanderbilt Television News Archive, will explore libraries’ technology future.
