Futurist Interest Group (FIG)

Futurist Interest Group


The Futurist Interest Group (FIG) prepares 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 Futurist Interest Group (FIG) engages in future-focused content from a broad spectrum of fields and consider implications for libraries. The FIG functions as a think tank: tracking trends, addressing issues relevant to Colorado libraries, and sharing their knowledge with members and member organizations.

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