David Lee King introduces emerging technology trends and shows how those trends are reshaping library services. Attendees will learn what trends to look for, find out the difference between a technology trend and a fad, and get ideas about how their library can respond to technology as it emerges.

King will also discuss change and the transition stages people go through with change, guidelines to navigate through change, both for frontline staff and for managers, and provide recommendations on successfully transitioning staff through change. Join us!

David Lee King is the Digital Services Director at Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library, where he plans, implements, and experiments with emerging technology trends. He speaks internationally about emerging trends, website management, digital experience, and social media, and has been published in many library-related journals. David is a Library Journal Mover and Shaker.

This event is FREE to library staff members and directors and is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor
