Urban Libraries Conference Highlights STEAM

Leala Arnold

Enis, M.  (2016) Urban libraries conference highlights STEAM for kids, programs for adults, and DC Makers in residence. Library Journal.  Retrieved from: https://lj.libraryjournal.com/2016/05/shows-events/urban-libraries-conference-highlights-steam-for-kids-programs-for-adults-and-dc-makers-in-residence/#_

This article was about the Urban Libraries conference, and discusses a number of the discussions that took place during the conference.  Some of the programs discussed the importance of STEAM in libraries and Social media marketing.  The idea was to make sure that the community understood how important libraries are for the community.  "Despite the advent of Google and other tools that have simplified access to information, public libraries have maintained their relevance by responding to complex problems within their communities."

I thought this was an informative article that highlights all of the interesting discussions that took place during the conference. It helps you to understand exactly what goes on in the conference, and also informs the reader of the importance of the discussion topics.
