Technology Trends in Libraries & the Emerging Generation, by David Lee King

"Technology has changed the face of libraries, and is continuing to change how we work and how we deliver services to our younger customers and their parents. This presentation introduces emerging technology trends and needs of children and teens, and how those trends can help re-shape library services. Examples of how to incorporate these trends into libraries are provided."

"The app would enable library workers to shorten long lines by going around as a mobile checkout “desk,” Williams said. The iPad and a connecting electronic scanner could also be used at community events outside of the libraries to register new patrons and provide more information about their services.
The idea of creating a special iPad app for library workers came up in late 2010 as the technology staff noticed how useful their iPhone app was to library patrons, and they thought it would be a great in-house tool for customer service, said Chis Tonjes, the Washington D.C. public library director of information technology."
