Spaces, Cases, and Faces: Libraries as Emerging Technologies Hubs

After researching emerging techonolies professional positions, it became clear that it is not a widespread position. Evidence was found for ~60 positions across the US. The interesting aspect of this fact is that organizations that have implemented an Emerging Techonologies position typically become champions of the position and expand it into a team/department. Highlighted will be the way we these teams create value for libraries and their plans to expand that value in the future. Our hope is that this will serve as an inspiration to other libraries to build ET teams and become the go to tech resource for their patrons.
