Library & Technology - Summit Part 2

The Virtual Librarian Summit is a spin-off from our in-person Research Seminars for Asia Pacific librarians. It is a convention for academic library professionals in the region to learn from peers, exchange insights on how they are managing the current situation and keeping up with technology advancements.

Here’s what the two-part series will cover:

  • Learn from industry peers on library best practices, including how to adapt and remain connected in the face of challenging times
  • Discover the latest technologies and applications revolving around libraries today, including the use of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Social Media
  • Hear from leading institutions in Asia Pacific on how they are preparing for the next generation of librarians

Summit 1 (9 September) focused on library best practices, while Summit 2 (14 October) will concentrate on technology and applications.

Note: This event will be conducted in English. It is open to all academic library professionals in the region, including Wiley's existing customers and partners.
