What bold steps must law librarians take to be navigators in this digital age? John Palfrey believes librarians can be more valuable than ever before by being masters—if not creators—of the tools that make finding, creating, and storing information simpler and more effective. Join us for a candid discussion with John on his current book, BiblioTech: Why Libraries Matter More Than Ever in the Age of Google, and how librarians can be agents of change, actively creating vital pathways to new opportunities.
