Modern Librarians: Superheroes of the Tech World

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No… it’s modern librarians—the superheroes of research, product development, and data driven decision-making at companies like Facebook, Disney, Microsoft, and Amazon. Many large tech companies were founded with a “corporate library” at the core of research & development. Join our session to explore how librarians are bringing unspoken value to tech companies by structuring data, making it discoverable, and applying it through the workflow leading to increased innovation and revenue. You’ll never look at your library the same way again!
