I’m very excited about next year’s program for Computers in Libraries 2014 in Washington DC. How can it not be fun with the theme, Hack the Library! Although, I do think almost anything can be hacked (or transformed) — any organization, any process. And not only do I think they can be hacked, I think they should be. We need fresh ideas, re-engineered processes, new strategies, continuous innovation and creativity as we deal with an uncertain future no matter if we are a library, an information service, or just about anything else!
Great keynotes for Computers in Libraries 2014:
