San Francisco Public Library • Koret Auditorium
Friday April 28th, 2017 • 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
This year we celebrate NCTPG’s 80th year. To mark the occasion we invited speakers with expansive perspectives of the past, present, and future of technical services. Technology changes but the need to manage change does not. Join us in examining what it takes to navigate the evolution of our work. How do we keep calm and carry on amidst the continuous motion of today’s libraries? Managing a city library system through years of great change — cross-institutional collaborations — translating past formats for future preservation — transitioning from MARC to Linked Data — our speakers will share their expertise, experience, and advice for how to embrace change in today’s libraries.
This year’s speakers:
Luis Herrera • City Librarian, San Francisco Public Library
Xiaoli Li • Head of Content Support services, UC Davis
Mark Matienzo • Collaboration & Interoperability Architect, Stanford University
