  • – The intersection of emerging technology and equipment, and library buildings;
  • – Technologies that bridge physical and digital to expand service offerings or enhance the user experience;
  • – Technology on a limited budget (i.e., innovation on a shoestring);
  • – Use of virtual or augmented reality to expand service offerings;
  • – Ways that technology makes the design process, buildings, and/or services more equitable or inclusive;
  • – Technologies that impact operational efficiencies, staffing models, staff productivity, health and wellness;
