Emerging Trends in Libraries with David Lee King
What emerging trends are impacting society in general and, more specifically, what do they mean for the library community? King will discuss the DIY movement – maker and hacker spaces – digital media labs, co-working spaces in libraries, social media, web changes, and the proliferation of mobile devices and mobile apps.

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.
