To enable the Southern Chapter/MLA to support and host a speaker who will directly address the challenges for academic and hospital libraries in the future. To accompany our theme, 'Experience the Magic: Libraries of Tomorrow',Julie Esparza, MLS, AHIP, will discuss what she sees for libraries and librarians around the corner. Julie is not only the new President-Elect of MLA, but has also served a long career in academic, hospital, corporate, and public libraries before arriving in Shreveport, LA at LSU Health. She is uniquely placed to discuss the challenges, benefits, and possible futures for libraries of all types. Julie will begin a discussion of the future of libraries which we will carry throughout the conference.
