Innovation applied to inspiration drives invention.  When added to information, it becomes the perfect combination of thought, idea, knowledge, and data. Federal librarians know that strategic planning, technology, and education are the methods that nurture information innovation while acquisitions, analytics, and preservation are the tools that keep it vibrant. Knowledge seekers, researchers, and readers are the beneficiaries of this information innovation. They reap its dividends to imagine new concepts and creations to begin the marvelous process of innovation anew.

 

Join your colleagues for two days of training to shine a light on the methods and the tools that make federal libraries the center of innovation for both the missions of their agencies and for the benefit of all of their users. (Stay tuned for more speaker and session announcements!)
