Top Tech Trends, ALA Annual 2015 edition: Local and Unique; New metrics and citation tools

I threw my hat into the ring to be on the LITA Top Tech Trends panel at the ALA annual conference later this month in San Francisco, and never could I say that I was more excited not to be selected. (You can find more info on this year’s Top Tech Trends session in the ALA Conference Scheduler.) There is a great lineup of panelists this year:

  • Sarah Houghton (Moderator), Director of the San Rafael Public Library – @TheLiB
  • Carson Block, 20-year veteran of libraries and now a library technology consultant – @CarsonBlock
