2012 Trends Every Librarian Needs to Know

Thanks to the California State Library’s Rush Brandis, many of us received this presentation in email form today. The story told by these new figures, and suggested applications for creating a responsive information future, include an array encompassing health, education and much more besides commerce and entertainment.

In one interesting section of the story these slides tell, we get the chance to consider how technology and its adoption provoke society to evolve from being asset-heavy (think your old vinyl record album collection) to asset-light (MP3 playlist, of course).

Don’t just sit back and watch this show: let’s start brainstorming the opportunities we have to evolve as asset-light services that deliver more broadly and with more depth than can our asset-heavy tradition.
