What current technologies are on the cusp of moving from “gee whiz” to
real-life application in libraries? This LITA Guide will explore the
information landscape as it might be in 3-5 years. It will describe the
emerging technologies of today that are likely to be at the core of
“standard” library offerings in the not-distant future. It will introduce
project managers and project doers not just to new technologies, but also
provide an understanding of the broader trends that are driving them.

Chapter-length essays are particularly sought on the following topics:


   -

   Mobile Technologies
   -

   Linked Data
   -

   Web Scale Discovery Environments
   -

   Technology for Augmented Reality
   -

   Digital Repositories
   -

   Digital Preservation
   -

   Content Management
   -

   Ereaders & Ebooks
   -

   Cloud-based ILS
   -

   Beyond FRBR – metadata formats


Chapters will be in the 4000-4500 word range and address the following
points:


   1.

   Define the technology (in general, and in the context of the chapter)
   2.

   Why does the technology matter in general, and to libraries in
   particular?
   3.

   What are early adopters doing?
   4.

   What does future trend look like?
   5.

   Having embraced this technology, what would the library of 2017 look
   like?


Proposals should be submitted to Ken Varnum, the book’s editor, at <
[log in to unmask]> by Monday, April 15, 2013. Please include the
following things in your proposal.


   -

   Your name, title, phone, and email address
   -

   A few sentences describing your experience with the technology being
   proposed
   -

   A draft of points 1 and 2 in the outline above
   -

   An outline of the remainder of the chapter
   -

   A writing sample, preferably something published in an edited or
   peer-reviewed publication
