hi-fi sci-fi library: The Presentation

(Maybe) You’ve heard the song and seen the video. Now you can see the presentation that inspired them both!

-Hi-Fi-Sci-Fi-Library: Technology, Convergence, Content, Community, Ubiquity and Library Futures.
LITA National Forum – keynote – October 18, Cincinnati, OH

Description:
So you think its an interesting time to be a librarian now? Just wait! Through an examination of past trends, current tech, emerging tech, academic futurism and a dash of pop culture, well take a realistic peek at where library technology is headed. Well then take this information and start planning what we can do now to ensure that libraries not only continue to offer our vital service, but that our role and positive contributions to society increase – perhaps quite dramatically.

The presentation is stuffed full of multi media, special effects and lots of realistic, yet fun and thought provoking surprises designed to get your mind chugging along as is contemplates the future of Libraryland. A future populated with hi-fi sci-fi libraries!

These two intro slides will be running at as people are filtering into the room (they are slightly clipped here, click to see the whole slide):

Tomorrow’s NEBASE Intro Slide

Designing PowerPoint presentations is FUN! And this is one I’ve wanted to work on for years. For almost ten years now, actually. It is the first time I’m presented the session and it a new direction, so *fingers crossed*. If nothing else, it will be unexpected, fun, entertaining and I *really* think, thought provoking. If you happen to be near Lincoln, NE tomorrow, why not swing by? A more *ahem* “refined” and adjusted version will be used at my LITA keynote session in October too.
hi-fi sci-fi library, baby! :)
