This Chalk Talk is part of our annual series of professional (yet informal) literary salons. Download the Report and dive right in, or select a couple of the 18 library-focused topics that are of special interest to you, whether that is "rethinking library spaces," "embracing the need for radical change," "information visualization," or "the Semantic Web and Linked Data." These topics, and many more (14, to be exact), are covered in the Report, and are ripe for debate, discussion, disagreement, and/or decision-making.
The Horizon Reports are created following an unusual and interesting methodology, described on the NMC's Horizon Project wiki. Our salong-style discussion, animated by Mimi's insider perspective, promises to be horizon-broadening and enlightening.
