Can Any Trend Become a Library Trend?
11:30-12:30 pm
Sponsored by ALA

Session Description

How do business, travel, education, demographic, and other trends effect libraries? And how can libraries make the most of these trends so that we are truly responsive to our communities and not just trendy? Miguel Figueroa from ALA's Center for the Future of Libraries will look at some of the big trends reported across other industries and sectors and think through how libraries are responding to the emerging user needs driving these trends.
