New Horizons

“We shape our own future, but we cannot do that if we sit back and simply watch. The library that is flexible, listens to its community, and changes to meet changing demand and demographics will be the library that succeeds, prospers, and pushes its mission out to the most citizens” (Casey & Savastinuk, 2007).

How will new and established technologies further impact library service? What should librarians make of virtual assistants, smart homes, artificial intelligence, and more? This module explores the changing information landscape and offers a chance to see what academics and librarians see on the horizon.
