  1. Mobile Technologies, Mobile Users: Will Libraries Mobilize? - Joan K. Lippincott

    Joan K. Lippincott, Coalition for Networked Information

    Many types of mobile devices are currently being employed by members of our community. In addition to communicating with others, individuals are seeking information via these devices. What roles can libraries play, and perhaps more importantly what roles should they play in delivering content that is configured for mobile devices, in developing services aimed at mobile device users, and in configuring physical spaces to respond to mobile device users’ needs? The presentation will feature examples of current library practice as well as describe the use of mobile devices more broadly in teaching and learning. Factors to consider in developing a plan that addresses mobile devices will be described.

  2. Knowledge in the Age of Abundance - David Weinberger

    LITA Forum 2009 Keynote

    Nothing has been more important to our culture than knowledge. We’ve even used it to define who we are: We are the rational animals, the animals that can know their world. But our traditional Western notion of knowledge has been premised on an implicit scarcity: of access to publishers, access to books, and a scarcity of knowledge itself. Our new connected age is one of abundance. This is bringing a change in the nature, shape, value and role of knowledge itself.
