On October 16, 2013 Library Journal and School Library Journal presented its fourth annual online event, The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries. The full day event featured a new format with programming designed to take libraries into the future to better serve their community’s evolving needs.

Reinventing Libraries offered many thought-provoking discussions and actionable solutions to some of the biggest challenges libraries are facing, including rethinking collections, engaging the community and helping students and patrons learn. The program featured insights on managing new technologies and services; the latest developments in ebooks and streaming media; optimizing discovery; and much more!

Our speakers and panelists, including Dan Cohen, Susan Hildreth, Mimi Ito, Deborah Jacobs, Barbara Stripling and John Wilkin explored innovative ideas and actionable solutions for and from libraries of all types – school, academic, and public.

Now you can access all of the presentations as well as view sponsor documents on demand through January 16, 2014, 11:59 PM EDT.
