The NMC Horizon Report: 2017 Library Edition Wiki

Welcome to the workspace for the New Media Consortium's Horizon.Library project. This is a place where the members of the Horizon.Library Panel of Experts manage the process of researching, discussing, and ultimately, selecting the topics for the inaugural NMC Horizon Report: 2017 Library Edition. The annual report is published by the The New Media Consortium in collaboration with University of Applied Sciences (HTW) Chur, Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) Hannover, and ETH-Bibliothek Zurich, with the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) as our key dissemination partner.

The NMC Horizon Report: 2017 Library Edition applies the process developed for the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project with a focus on emerging technologies for libraries. Members of the library community are encouraged to follow the Panel of Expert's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.

The report is planned to be released on March 23, 2017 at the ACRL 2017.
