However, few scholarly researches have ever been made to thoroughly explore emerging technologies and their implications on academic library information services in the digital age. The objective of this presentation is to overview most relevant emerging technologies which would impact academic library information resources, services, and instructions under web-based academic distributed information infrastructure. This presentation intends to assist academic consultants, executives, instructors, IT specialists, librarians, managers, trainers, and other professionals effectively and efficiently identify and utilize emerging technologies that lead to successful learning results under dynamic and interactive student-centered learning environments. The proposed presentation will include the following major sections: 1. Introduction 2. Cutting-edge Technologies vs. Emerging Technologies 3. Emerging Technologies for Academic Library Information Services 4. Opportunities and Challenges 5. Summary Target session participants include academic consultants, executives, instructors, IT specialists, librarians, managers, trainers, and other professionals who would like to know more about which emerging technologies would impact on web-based academic library information resources, services, and instructions in the digital age.
