Innovation Lightning Rounds

These 60 minute sessions focus on innovative or entrepreneurial thinking in libraries – new ways to solve problems, new technology or existing tech utilized in new ways, etc. They will feature five 10-minute presentations back-to-back, with a moderator for introductions, Q&A, and time keeping. Timing is very important to allow equal time for all presenters, so please plan for your presentation to be 10 minutes or less.
