Colorado Association of Libraries - Futurists Interest Group (FIG)
Please submit your name if you support the addition of a Futurists Interest Group (described below) to the Colorado Association of Libraries. Only CAL members are able to support this initiative by signing this online form.


The Futurists Interest Group (FIG) shall prepare CAL members to take advantage of tomorrow’s opportunities to vitally serve their communities.


To address the rapidly changing world – technological, social, and otherwise, the Futurists Interest Group (FIG) would engage in future-focused content from a broad spectrum of fields and consider implications for libraries. The FIG would function as a think tank: tracking trends, addressing issues relevant to Colorado libraries, and sharing their knowledge with members and member organizations. This interest group would fill a gap because we have no other systematic strategies or consistent offerings to support CAL member in this arena.

FIG Strategies

• We will vigilantly track emerging trends across many sectors and disciplines.
• We will offer opportunities to library leaders and staff to embrace change through a mindset of proactive adaptation.
• We will develop scenarios, cast predictive frames, and provoke discussion to prepare libraries to be future-ready.
• We will provide opportunities to strengthen the future of libraries in Colorado through speakers, workshops, publications, and conference activities.
