New Podcast Available: "Professional Pivot Point: Regaining Relevance in a Rapidly Changing World"

 
In this interview, Roy Tennant talks with Joe Janes, Associate Professor of the Information School at the University of Washington, about why he believes that we are at a professional crossroads.

The future will either leave libraries in the dust, or we can seize opportunities to demonstrate our value and solidify our place in modern society. There isn't a single boring minute in this look at the challenges we face in libraries, museums and archives and what we should be doing to regain our relvance for the communities we serve.

This is the twelfth podcast in our continuing series in which we ask the question, "What's keeping you awake at night?" of people we come across in our travels who are thinkng ahead, worrying about the next big issue or imagining the next big thing.
