- THE BELL TOWER
Many adults in our community had the opportunity to speak with Mimi Ito last year on the topic of “Connected Learning.” The OWHL team is delighted that Ms. Ito has been selected to give the Keynote address “Libraries and Connected Learning” at the virtual conference, The Digital Shift which will be held Wednesday, October 16th from 10-5.
The Digital Shift is an annual online event designed to recognize and support the radical reinvention of libraries occurring as a result of the proliferation of digital content and devices. Twenty-first century libraries are reinventing all aspects of their programs, from content collection to knowledge creation.
In addition to Ms. Ito’s Keynote, the conference will offer a panel featuring leaders from the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA,) University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Gates Library Foundation, and the American Library Association (ALA.)
Throughout the day, there will be programs in three key areas:
Community: Programming, Support, and Resource Sharing
Instruction: Helping Students and Patrons Learn and,
New Collections, New Content: Beyond the Container
Registration for the live event is FREE and includes 3 months of access to the event archives on demand. Members of the OWHL team will be attending as our schedules permit, and we invite you to “join” us from the venue and device of your choosing. Sign up today!
