Library Futures Workshop

On June 7, 2018, the Office of Library and Information Services is pleased to present a special full day workshop on the future.


The workshop will feature Miguel Figueroa of the American Library Association’s Center for the Future of Libraries, along with other futurists and innovators from the library world and beyond, to provide you with a foundation in futurecasting that you can take back to your library and apply. We will look at trends to understand what forces are shaping our society today, especially those that impact libraries and librarianship, and hear from speakers who are creating the future – and will help us learn how we can better prepare our libraries for that future.

Registration will open later this week, but in the meantime, mark your calendar – you won’t want to miss this workshop!

This program is a collaboration of the Office of Library and Information Services, the RI Office of Innovation, the RI Library Association, the Coalition of Library Advocates, and the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Library and Information Studies.
