JOINT KEYNOTE with INTERNET LIBRARIAN - Libraries & the New Education Ecosystem

Rainie shares new research about where libraries fit into the burgeoning education ecosystem of formal and informal learning. The Pew Research Center is doing a national survey of American adults to explore the lifelong learning needs of Americans and their sense of how different kinds of educational organizations and informal DIY learning can serve their needs. The research places special emphasis on workforce development issues and how libraries are viewed as part of community learning systems.

Digital Strategy Mapping

Mapping out an organization's digital strategy ensures that everyone knows where you are starting from and where you want to end up. The visualization and discussions in creating the map allow those involved to factor in the issues and considerations-many of which have been discussed at this Summit.

BREAK

Strategy Implementation: People Make It Happen

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 ‘"influential sway" than others. He also leads participants through an exercise to integrate their stakeholders into their strategy map and determine an approach for engaging them with the strategy.
