Presented by Gabriel Rios

***This event is currenly closed.***


This class is designed to give the busy librarian an overview of emerged and emerging technologies impacting (or potentially impacting) our profession. It is a survey course that will cover a variety of technology topics. Topics discussed will be updated until the month prior to the course but could include: wearable technology, the Internet of Things, 3D printing, quantified self, mobile devices, personal cloud services, privacy, augmented reality, virtual reality, and collaboration tools.

Students, health professionals and consumers use technologies to interact with health information on a daily basis. It is essential for librarians to investigate and experiment with these technologies to improve access to timely and relevant health information.
