On Thursday, November 5, from 5 PM to 6 PM, Index Data’s Sebastian Hammer, will be participating in Innovation Session 1 at the Charleston Conference. This year the conference will be held virtually due to the pandemic. The 60-minute session will focus on innovative or entrepreneurial thinking in libraries – new ways to solve problems, new technology or existing tech utilized in new ways, etc. It will feature four 8-minute presentations back-to-back, with a moderator for introductions, Q&A, and time keeping. Plenty of time will be allotted at the end of the session for audience questions and discussion. Sebastian will present with Kristina Rose (NYU) and Jill Morris (PALCI) on the topic of Recognizing opportunity: A path forward for controlled digital lending.
