Emerging Technologies (old): Literature Review & Bibliography

Literature Review

ETC Poster Session: Literature Review

Articles discussing emerging technologies and social media in libraries are plentiful, with descriptions of various Web 2.0 tools and how those specific tools may be used in libraries (Stephens 2007). Literature that addresses the use of staff in evaluating the increasing volume of emerging technologies by way of committee vs. dedicated library position is lacking. Exceptions to this include an article by Dorney (2009) on the hiring of three Emerging Technologies Librarians at Towson University in Maryland and an article by Stephens (2006) that does discuss the use of an Emerging Technologies Committee. Additional literature includes articles focused on staff training programs for Learning 2.0 and instances where a department head initiated the implementation of social media within a single department, such as reference or technical services (Gross & Leslie, 2008; Chen, 2009; Currie, 2010).
