Library Science Fiction: Finding Inspiration in the Implausible

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Some of the most amazing innovations have come out of science fiction writing. Doors that open authomatically! Ipads! Wireless phones! These were once seen as crazy, outlandish, pie-in-the-sky ideas, and now they're a reality of our everyday lives. Librarians constantly lament the limitations of money, space, personnel, and time. What if those limitations were to no longer exist? What kind of future could we imagine if we threw off the shackles of circumstance?

Do you have crazy ideas about the future of libraries? Do you want to HEAR about and discuss crazy ideas about the future of libraries? Come to this round table discussion to brainstorm and discuss wild concepts! Who know? Maybe the next BIG idea in librarianship will come out of this session!

There will be a short presentation, followed by a round table discussion.
