Financial stress, community challenges, the changing nature of information, rapidly evolving and emerging technologies, our changing demography, and a host of other factors have sparked numerous conversations about the Future of Libraries.

But the Future of Libraries necessitates a deeper discussion regarding the Future of Librarians — and how we prepare future librarians and information professionals to transform the communities that they serve.

Join us as the iSchool, the Information Policy & Access Center (iPAC), and the ALA Student Chapter at the University of Maryland host an evening Sari Feldman (ALA President-Elect) as we discuss the future of our profession and Re-Envision the MLS with panelists:
+ Stacey Aldrich (State Librarian, Hawaii)
+ Priscille Dando (Coordinator, Library Information Services, Fairfax County Public Schools)
+ Rachel Frick (Director of Business Development, Digital Public Library of America)
+ Lucy Holman (Director, Langsdale Library, University of Baltimore)
+ Richard Reyes-Galivan (Executive Director, DC Public Library)
