Technology with a Face: High Tech Meets High Touch

Technology with a Face: High Tech Meets High Touch was the theme for the 2007 LACUNY Institute, held May 18, 2007 at Baruch College, the City University of New York.

As librarians, we have historically prided ourselves on our face-to-face relations with patrons. As we adapt to new and diverse students: net gens, adult learners, international students, etc., our emerging challenge has been to maintain this personal touch in the increasingly technocentric academic library environment. How can we creatively apply new technologies to better connect with user research needs and foster information literacy?
