Speaker: Eil Neiburger
Description: 

Eli Neiburger is Deputy Director of the Ann Arbor District Library, where he was hired as helpdesk technician in 1997. An avid gamer, he's the author of “Gamers... in the LIBRARY?!” published in 2007 by ALA Editions and helps with the organization of International Games Day @ your library. Neiburger is also a contributor to “VOYA,” “Library Technology Reports,” “BOOK: A Futurist's Manifesto,” and “Well Played,” a journal of videogame criticism produced by Carnegie Mellon's ETC Press.

An engaging and entertaining speaker, Neiburger has spoken across the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand about libraries, gaming, ebooks, publishing, and the web. He will challenge President’s Program attendees to think – think about what they do and why they do it, think about what changes are coming in the library world, think about what they can do to transform learning for their students.
