Predicting the Smart Library: Emerging Technologies Meet the Challenge of Transformed Libraries


Copyright (c) 2013 Edinburgh Public Library

Abstract: Major trends are in play that contribute to major transformations underway in libraries.  In the broader publishing and information arena, the explosion of interest in e-books represents another wave in the shift toward electronic content that in previous times saw the near complete transition of journal articles to electronic form.  Web-based and cloud computing stands to bring fundamental changes in the ways that libraries use technology in support of their internal operations and in providing access to their collections and services.  Breeding will help library decision makers explore how to harness these trends and technologies to meet the strategic missions.
