    Enterprise Information Services: Convergence of Digital, AI, Diversity, & Information Flow
    Monday, March 30 2020
    1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

    In conjunction with SLA, this interactive workshop provides a facilitated discussion of issues important to enterprise information services: the changing roles of corporate librarians or information chameleons becoming go-to pros by translating info pro skills across silos; the use of artificial (or augmented) intelligence and the implications; the opportunities in and between libraries and other sectors-new partnerships; traditional services in non-traditional venues along with non-traditional services in traditional venues; digital services to a virtual audience; and experimenting with new tools to accelerate learning and change. Join the conversation with our facilitators and your colleagues to get some different perspectives and thinking about possible futures for your library. All types of libraries are welcome as there are many strengths we should be sharing in our communities.

    Join these active and knowledgeable SLA members for a great discussion.  Hope to see lots of SLA IT members there!  Register at Best deals are the Gold Pass which includes workshops & the 3-day conference or the Library Leaders Summit (also with SLA as a partner).
