Recent years have introduced a variety of new technologies into the mainstream, such as artificial intelligence, data science, and virtual and augmented reality. As the research community increasingly uses these tools and techniques to generate findings, what are the needs of the library in supporting the research activity as well as the resulting output? This virtual conference will explore technologies supported by the modern research library and the impact on both workflow and workforce. The first block of the day will consist of discussions of the administrative view of new technologies impacting on the library with the rest of the day given over to case studies.
