Patrica F. Anderson

Emerging Technologies Informationist, Taubman Health Sciences Library, University of Michigan
Patricia F. Anderson is the Emerging Technologies Informationist at the Taubman Health Sciences Library, University of Michigan — Ann Arbor. In this position she has made apps, comics, a video game; taught workshops and built a library collection (with alien and animal costumes!) in a virtual world; 3D printed cool stuff, and soldered chips on circuit boards, which officially makes this the coolest job ever. Her job lets her hangout with the microbiome researchers, precision medicine folk, and get to talk about her explorations in personal genomics. She publishes on social media (especially in cancer communities), online health and search engines, wearables, text mining and tech mining (which are different things), textual analysis, and systematic reviews. In other words, she happily revels in geekery of many sorts.

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.
