If you never miss the Top Tech Trends panel presentation at the annual Medical Library Association meeting you won’t want to miss this lively discussion Thursday 9pm Eastern on the #medlibs hashtag. Technology plays a big role in our jobs as information professionals, is constantly evolving, and new technology is often quickly integrated into health and medical practice. New technologies are also being used to support medical education. Join in this chat to learn more about some of the top tech trends other Medical Librarians are using around the country.

Discussion topics will include places to find out about technology including the Horizon Report (http://www.nmc.org/horizon-project/horizon-reports) for education and the Gartner Hype Cycle (http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/2819918) for quickly emerging trends as well as sharing about the latest technologies medical librarians and their clients are using for both education and health improvement purposes.

Emily (@hustej) is currently the Technology Coordinator at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region in Houston, Texas. She has been teaching, training, and spreading the word about emerging technology trends for over four years.
