D101 - Not Your Momma's Library!

10:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
DeAnza III (Portola)
Sonya True, Professor/Digital Initiatives Library Director, Vanguard University

This session shares studies showing that brains are being rewired like never before and discusses how the new rewired brain and the population variation of multi-level Digital Natives mixed with digital immigrants are affecting how librarians need to contend, teach, and offer new ways of presenting and offering information literacy, resources, and even reinventing the physical library space. Gamification, “info-trainment,” touchability, selfies, interactivity, and visuals abound. See how libraries and librarians can integrate these new demands for the rewired, yet help fill areas where that rewired brain is getting “weakened.” Learn why traditional and nondigital librarianship from your “momma’s library” is still important to integrate in this new digital library ecosystem.
