Bleeding Edge or Comfortable Cliff - Tech Trends for 2017: Webinar (10/13/16) 


Like most of us, who pay even a little attention to recent developments in technology, you're likely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information and progress. With so much coming at us so fast, keeping up is difficult. Business models are changing rapidly, mobile-first is becoming mobile-only, and social media is a maturing medium yet, even so, the rules are evolving. 

In this webinar, we're going to distill recent advances in technology into some overarching trends that we should be keeping our eyes on. We can't track everything, but in this webinar we can pick out some patterns in what's happening around us.

Use this session to help you discern which trends really matter now.

Virtual Trainer: Laura Solomon

Laura Solomon, MCIW, MLS is the Library Services Manager for the Ohio Public Library Information Network and the former Web Applications Manager for the Cleveland Public Library. She has been doing web development and design for over fifteen years, in both public libraries and as an independent consultant. She also authored a statewide web site usability study in 2004 that evaluated the site of every public library in Ohio. She specializes in developing with Drupal, as well as in web code and accessibility standards. She is a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker.  Her book Doing Social Media So It Matters:  A Librarian’s Guide was published in late 2010 and The Librarian’s Nitty-Gritty Guide to Social Media was published in 2013.  As a former children’s librarian, she enjoys bringing the “fun of technology” to audiences and in giving libraries the tools they need to better serve the virtual customer.
