As program planner for the Computers in Libraries conference, Jane Dysart (Dysart & Jones) really hit the nail on the head with her 2014 theme, Hack the Library. The idea of hacking, which she described in her opening remarks as looking at everything people do and transforming, really resonated with the hundreds of speakers and forward-thinking librarians in attendance at ITT's 29th annual event in Washington DC. Embracing the Hack Your Library conference theme, Mary Lee Kennedy (The New York Public Library) outlined her hacking for innovation strategy. Hacking starts with encouraging a culture of innovation, she told delegates. Thinking outside the box, having fun along the way.
