Beyond the SEA: March 20, 2013 – Emerging Technologies in Medical Libraries: Librarian Interest and Perceived Challenges
Presenter: Andrea Wright, MLIS
Andrea Wright is the Technology Librarian at the University of South Alabama Biomedical Library. She regularly speaks about social media, mobile computing, and other emerging technologies in library, education, and clinical settings.
In September 2012, the NNLM-SE/A Technology Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) conducted a survey assessing technology instruction needs and interests among member libraries throughout the Southeastern-Atlantic Region to offer SE/A staff recommendations in creating appropriate and relevant technology training materials. Survey results have helped identify emerging technologies that could serve as appropriate topics for future technology instruction. Survey responses also provide insight into challenges that librarians may face when learning about or trying to use emerging technologies in their organizations.
