Virtual conferences are new type of educational event that NISO is offering
this year. These 5-6 hour conferences are held online in webinar-like
formats, with occasional breaks in the schedule for participants. The longer
length allows the depth of coverage of a conference coupled with the
convenience of a webinar. And all registrants get access to the recorded
version for one year, so if you can't attend the whole conference virtually
on the day of the event, you can view it later at your convenience.

As former Library Journal Editor-in-Chief Francine Fielkoff wrote in an
editorial last year, "Libraries Should Be What Users Want—With a Little Help
from Librarians." Libraries everywhere are planning, strategizing,
experimenting, and conversing with their users in order to realize how they
may best serve as successful learning spaces in rapidly-changing
technological, social, and economic environments. Creation is often seen as
an important theme of future community spaces. Supporting 3D printers and
other means of publishing content are a few examples of how libraries may
stake their willingness to extend their capabilities in managing shared
resources beyond those of an information provider to becoming an information
creator.

In the first NISO virtual conference of the year, Future Perfect: How
Libraries Are Implementing Emerging Technologies—to be held on February 20,
2012 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time)—a variety of experts will
discuss some of the technologies that offer the most promise for libraries.
We aim to interact with the audience as much as possible to extend the
conversation with those who are attending.

Topics and speakers are:

• Keynote: Overview of the emerging technology landscape/how to keep up with
emerging technologies – Jason Griffey, Head of Library Information
Technology, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga

• Augmented Reality – Christine Perey, PEREY Research & Consulting

• 3D Printing: Makerspaces – Susan Considine, Executive Director,
Fayetteville Free Library

• 3D Printing: Intellectual Property Concerns – Michael Weinberg, Senior
Staff Attorney and Innovation Evangelist, Public Knowledge

• Espresso Implementation – Rivkah Sass, Library Director, Sacramento Public
Library

• Library in a Box (Bibliobox) – David Fiander, Web Services Librarian,
Western University

• Roundtable discussion: Implementing Emerging Technologies at Your
Institution – Facilitated by Todd Carpenter, Managing Director, NISO

Registration is per site (access for one computer) and closes at 12:00 pm
Eastern on February 20, 2013 (the day of the webinar). Discounts are
available for NISO members and students. All virtual conference registrants
receive access to the recorded version for one year.
