Join Library Journal, Los Angeles Public Library and an array of expert speakers at the fourth annual Directors’ Summit entitled Disruptions and Opportunities: Libraries Welcome Change. This two-day program will focus on coping with the changing world and embracing disruptions in technology, services and collections to move your staff and library forward. We’ll look at how these disruptions change the value proposition in libraries and the skills needed by your work force to succeed.

Libraries are not the only educational and cultural institutions that are living in these disruptive times. Museums, cultural centers and performing and producing arts organizations also have to adjust and change as well. Gail Dexter Lord, Co-President of Lord Cultural Resources, the largest cultural planning firm in the world will deliver a keynote and share her theories and practices around cultural planning.
