About the NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Library Edition



As the centerpiece of the NMC Horizon Project, the NMC Horizon Report series charts the landscape of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and creative inquiry around the globe. Since the launch of the Horizon Project in March 2002, the NMC has held an ongoing series of conversations and dialogs with hundreds of technology professionals, library professionals, educators, faculty, technologists, and representatives of leading corporations.

Each year, a Panel of Experts considers the results of these dialogs and also looks at a wide range of articles, published and unpublished research, papers, and websites to generate a list of technologies, trends, challenges, and issues that knowledgeable people in technology industries, higher education, and schools are thinking about.

This project continues again in 2016-17 with cooperation from HTW Chur, TIB Hannover, ETH-Bilbiothek, and the Association for College & Research Libraries (ACRL). The 2017 Horizon Project Library Expert Panel was convened in October 2017 and conducts its research and discussion in this wikispace. The NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Library Edition will be released in March 2017.

Members of the education 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. It is the record of the processes used, materials referenced, research methods, and decisions that are part of creating the NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Library Edition. It is meant to provide a deep resource of materials that underpin the report.

Any interested party is encouraged to participate in the Horizon Project, as users of and contributors to the wiki, or by using the project's hashtag on Twitter: #NMChz.
