Historically, disruptions to the library industry have come from both inside and outside the sphere of the profession. No matter where changes originate, however, libraries must increase the pace at which they innovate to meet the ever accelerating demands of the public. Mike Teets discussed library user demographics and how commercial and consumer technology races have become a primary driver for library technologies. He also addressed the challenges and potential that mobile technologies bring to the table. Jay Jordan joined Mike to put OCLC's strategy and innovation efforts into perspective relative to the overall library landscape.
