Libary 2.0 Conference

SAVE THE DATE – Scheduled for June 7, 2018

The June Library 2.018 conference, Blockchain Applied: Impact on the Information Profession, will include sessions that  focus on blockchain technology and the ways it can be used by libraries and information centers as a community anchor.   

Registration in this collaborative open online conference is free to the profession and public. 

Blockchain technology has the potential to enhance the role played by libraries within their communities, however, there are many questions yet to be answered about how specifically blockchain technology might be used and how much value it would add to library services and the communities they serve. The San José State University School of Information (iSchool) received an IMLS grant to investigate ways that blockchain technology can be used by libraries as a community anchor to partner with other organizations and to support city/community goals.

This online and participatory conference presents a unique opportunity to explore the possibilities of the ways that libraries and librarians can use blockchain technology in the future or are incorporating blockchain technology into their current practice.
