*See Updated Information About This Event!*

*NISO Virtual Conference*, *The Library of the Future: Inside and Out*
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

As libraries re-evaluate and redesign the services offered to their
communities, the ripples of change can be felt across the institution. New
job titles and functions appear in university employment postings-clinical
information specialist, data scientist, assessment librarian. Space
previously given over to stacks is reallocated. Information resources and
tools reshape the library's budget. Whether the process is visible or
invisible to the library patron, the functions of the library are being
re-engineered at a core level. What are the implications for library
directors? And for content and platform providers?

Speaker abstracts have been posted to the NISO web site!
