The Horizon Report is a highly valued annual from the New Media Consortium which tracks and predicts emerging technologies that are expected to influence various aspects of academia. There are several reports, covering a range of educational domains, with the two of most interest to the medical library community being the Library Edition (newest released August 2014), and the Higher Education Edition (newest released February 2015).
- Horizon Report: 2015 Higher Education Edition: http://www.nmc.org/publication/nmc-horizon-report-2015-higher-education-edition/
- Horizon Report: 2014 Library Edition: http://www.nmc.org/publication/nmc-horizon-report-2014-library-edition/
The reports are structured around new technologies, trends, and issues shaping our environments. How relevant are they to those working in healthcare environments? What do medical librarians need to know about the issues and technologies? Let's find out when we talk about them!
