Keynote: Transforming Knowledge in the Age of the Net

An industry watcher and participant for many years, Weinberger gets to the core of the transformations happening around us, especially with respect to the Net.  One reviewer commented that this new book discusses “how the economics of data collection, storage and transmission have profoundly altered not just how we look at expertise and knowledge, but even what we think of as “facts.” … Last year’s Internet Librarian keynote speaker, John Seely Brown, calls Weinberger, “one of the most important thinkers of the digital age. If you want to understand what it means to live in a world awash in information, Too Big to Know is the guide you've been looking for.”    Be inspired by Weinberger’s ideas and big picture perspective.  Get new insights to apply to your network, community and work for a successful and engaged future.  Ensure that as internet librarians you are at the core of your customers’ activities in gathering and creating knowledge.

One-on-One with David Weinberger

Need we say more? David has said “in a digital world, if you don’t let users organize information their way, they’ll look elsewhere. The good news is that bottom-up organization discovers hidden value in what your organization offers. It just requires screwing your head on differently.” So, how do Library Directors & Deans need to screw their heads on?

Libraries 2020: Influencing Digital Strategy Implementation

Developing the digital strategy is just the beginning. The hard work for many libraries is influencing key stakeholders to champion, fund and support the strategy. Ken leads off this discussion by highlighting the research into why some individuals hold more ‘influencial sway’ than others. This research, some done by researchers working with his international team looking at factors affecting decisions about library funding, identifies six key principles for mastering any political situation -- and digital strategies are political.

Ken is then joined by the panel who share their many and varied experiences in influencing stakeholders to implement strategies. In this final discussion participants and panelists engage in considering the critical elements required to envision libraries of 2020 and bring them to reality.
