10:45-12:00 pm "The Evolving Librarian: Responding to Changes in the Workplace and Healthcare" Keynote Part 2, Michelle Kraft

"Once thought of as the keepers of knowledge, librarians roles are changing and they must either evolve and adapt or become a casualty of attrition. Disruptive technology, society and government changes in healthcare not only impact patients, doctors, and hospitals but the librarians who serve them. Librarians are faced more than ever with a shrinking budget and pressure to show their impact. Administration is demanding more than books and journals from its librarians and scrutinizing everything with an eye on its return on investment. This class will look at these changes and provide examples of how librarians can meet them head on."
