8-9 am

Jenny Levine: "High Tech, High Touch" This session will highlight online services that focus on users and replicate the "high touch" reach of library services in the physical world. How can we meet users at their point of need and use technology to insert the librarian back into the online experience, especially in a time of budget cuts and declining resources? Jumpstart your thinking about what we can do to make those online services even more robust and serendipitous to add the high (human) touch back in.

Jenny Levine: " Civic Engagement as Library Mission" As government services become almost exclusively electronic and local communities replicate themselves on the internet, how do citizens learn to participate in this new online world? What does it mean to be a "digital citizen" in the first decade of the 21st century, and how can libraries provide access to and help maintain open participation online? Public libraries are already the nexus of the community in the online world - do we have a mandate to be the center of the community online and should we provide a platform that lets everyone participate? Join in this conversation about digital identity, content creation, and the library's role in facilitating civic engagement for all age groups to discuss what the library's role is as a place for civic discourse and participation in an online world.
