Digital Connecticut Library ThinkTank
One of the goals in CLC’s strategic plan, launched in 2011, is to "Convene library leaders of the next decade to develop future-oriented, innovative pilot programs." CLC's Connecticut Library ThinkTank was conceived in part to address this goal, and the larger goal of keeping Connecticut libraries ahead of the technology curve. A group of library leaders has been convened and will continue to meet for as long as the project warrants. In addition, ThinkTank programs will be offered in order to incorporate the ideas of a wider audience.
May 2012 CLA Conference Program: Library ThinkTank: Choosing the Future of Libraries
Program description: A facilitated ThinkTank session for experienced library professionals who are willing to share, take risks, and take part in a creative visioning session. If you are comfortable with unconventional approaches, willing to reexamine basic assumptions and seeking a broader perspective then this session is for you. The practice of limitless thinking, of looking beyond the now and obvious to “what if?” and “why not?” will be embraced. We will explore a future where everyone is an innovator. Which future will we choose? Facilitated by David Boudinot, Henry Carter Hull Library & Jill Dugas Hughes, Connecticut Library Consortium.
