Thank you for attending the NYLA presentation: IT vs Librarians

Presented by Bob Johnson, Manager of Information and Technology at the Emma S. Clark Library, Ellen Druda, Internet Services Librarian at the Half Hollow Hills Community Library, and Stephen Ingram, Digital Services Librarian at the Northport-East Northport Public Library

NYLA 2014 Conference Saturday, November 8
Program Slot #7
9:30 AM – 10:45 AM

There is a longstanding belief that IT staff and Librarians are two departments separated by a different language. The vast changes in access to high speed internet, the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, and the variety of formats in which digital content are consumed is changing how these departments can best serve their communities patrons. IT services and Library services will have to collaborate to adapt the traditional library system to serve the rapidly advancing technological needs of our patrons.
