Focusing on the Future: Getting Ahead of the Curve
Today, libraries are continually confronted with claims that advances in technology will disrupt our future. Some predictions may be overhyped, while other emerging trends may indeed change the role of libraries in helping our communities thrive in an uncertain future. Futurist Garry Golden will help us imagine implications at the intersection of demographic and digital change, exploring questions such as: How aging populations and caregiver culture will impact our communities; How social equity can be achieved while pursuing innovation; and What will the next wave of digital policies and innovations mean for the library user experience?

Keynote Extended Session
We will continue the conversation, taking a deeper dive into the emerging trends introduced in the keynote presentation and expanding into the topic of the future of learning and “experience data.” Attendees will have the opportunity to imagine the future of library experiences and how they may be transformed by access to lifelong learning data through a Q&A portion of the session with Mr. Golden as well as table talk discussion with fellow attendees.

Pre-Event Survey: MHLS is focusing on the future for our 2018 Annual Meeting! The responses will help us begin thinking about how the future might be different and help our presenter, Futurist Garry Golden, get a sense of where our thinking is. Survey responses are anonymous. This survey should take you around 15 minutes to complete. We will provide an aggregated summary to all attendees. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TYWQRS6
