Keeping an eye on trends

LibraryTrendsWhile doing a little research for an upcoming TechBits post, I was introduced to the "Center for the Future of Libraries." This organization works to:

  • Identify emerging trends relevant to libraries and the communities they serve.
  • Promote futuring and innovation techniques to help librarians and library professionals shape their future.
  • Build connections with experts and innovative thinkers to help libraries address emerging issues.

They put out a newsletter, "Read for Later," which provides a weekly wrap-up of news and articles that indicate possible trends and changes that could affect libraries and the communities we serve. You can sign up and have the newsletter delivered via email or view past issues in a browser or with an RSS feed reader.

They also maintain a webpage of trends relevant to libraries and librarianship. From their webpage:

"This collection is available to help libraries and librarians understand how trends are developing and why they matter. Each trend is updated as new reports and articles are made available. New trends will be added as they are developed."
