Chat on Emerging Technologies

Edit: Transcript available at

The Medical Library Association (MLA) has created a team to examine the question of emerging technologies in medical librarianship, from what tech we should be aware of  to support our communities and profession to what tech we should know and use as professional competencies. 
Please help us by participating in this chat hosted by the medical librarians Twitter community, #medlibs, Thursday, August 8th 9:00 PM Eastern/6:00 PM Pacific for one hour. The chat transcript will be available for reference afterwards in an edit to this post.

Here is the official question we've been assigned:

"The explosion of information, expanding of technology (especially mobile technology), and complexity of healthcare environment present medical librarians and medical libraries opportunities and challenges. To live up with the opportunities and challenges, what kinds of skill sets or information structure do medical librarians or medical libraries are required to have or acquire so as to be strong partners or contributors of continuing effectiveness to the changing environment?"
