Synopsis

Everyone agrees that innovation is a worthy aim, but what does innovation actually entail? And what does it mean for a library organisation? For this issue of Library Technology Reports, Jason Vaughan reviewed professional literature, both scholarly and mainstream, and surveyed library directors to learn their views on how technological innovation is impacting today's libraries. Identifying common threads from a mix of perspectives, his findings provide clarity on the subject as well as an ideal way for readers to begin a discussion at their own organization. Gathering a range of insights about technological innovation, Vaughan presents * A summary of General Electric's GE Global Innovation Barometer* Phrases and words common to job ads referencing innovation* Criteria of awards for technological innovation* Analysis, charts, and graphs of responses to a 10-question survey
