“21st Century Skills & Utah Libraries” Presentation Video


It has been awhile since the 2010 Utah Library Association Conference in St. George, UT, in May. I posted that a video of the presentation would be available, and it finally is. We tried to also broadcast it live and archive it on Wimba, courtesy of the J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah, staff, but it wasn’t possible due to several technical reasons at the conference center. (Our frienemy – technology.)

My USL colleague Craig Neilson and I presented to a session of mostly public library trustees on 21st Century Trends for Trustees and 21st Century Skills affecting libraries. My boss, Utah State Librarian Donna Jones Morris, and I presented a conference session entitled 21st Century Skills & Utah Libraries on Friday May 14th. Now that the video has been formatted to fit the Utah State Library website, it is available for viewing at the links below. (The video is in QuickTime format, and I recommend you wait until it fully downloads before beginning to view. Internet Explorer has been being difficult with these videos.)
