Many of our library “crises,” whether institutional or personal, can be tied directly to the information technology changes that have occurred in the past 20 years - changes that continue and are accelerating. Three factors that are creating a dangerous perfect storm of societal changes that will impact libraries. Only by actively addressing the challenges each of these dangers pose, will libraries survive and thrive. Seven opportunities libraries and librarians are taking advantage of to remain relevant in the digital age concludes the presentation.
