From Kim Bui-Burton, Director of Community Services and Director of the Monterey Public Library, City of Monterey
Monterey, CA The Library Directors Digital Strategy Summit is an interactive event which includes leading edge thinking, collaborative opportunities for evaluating different future scenarios, various perspectives and viewpoints, industry experts, and more. Digital strategy has been defined as the process of specifying an organization's vision, goals, opportunities and initiatives in order to maximize the business benefits digital investments and efforts provide to the organization. This summit pushes us to clarify our visions and goals for digital strategy in library environments, shares opportunities and initiatives, and looks carefully at the benefits our investments can achieve.
This two-day summit hosted by Information Today is an interactive forum for library directors, CEOs, and CIOs of academic, public, government and special libraries to problem-solve, discuss, and network with colleagues. It features a mix of high level presentations, expert panels, round table and facilitated discussions with networking and time for engagement with peers. Information Today's event is being co-located with Internet Librarian, Oct 17-19, Monterey CA, www.infotoday.com/IL2011.
