This year’s conference theme was: Be Curious: Think, Share and Discover Curiosity helps us to be active, to embrace new ideas and to see new possibilities.
Highlights and links to the presentations and sessions at BCLA are below.
- The Plenary Session was opened by Michael Stephens, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.
Michael’s Philosophy: (from his blog: http://tametheweb.com/)
Libraries and librarians are faced with a technological and societal wave of change that is ever increasing as we move farther into the 21st century. Preparing new graduates to deal with constant change, use current and emerging technology tools to further the mission of their institutions, and meet the needs of communities of library users while never losing sight of our foundational values and principles is of utmost importance to me as an LIS educator.
