After researching emerging technologies professional positions, it became clear that it is not a widespread position. Evidence was found for ~60 positions across the US. The interesting aspect of this fact is that organizations that have implemented an emerging technologies position typically become champions of the position and expand it into a team/department. Highlighted will be the way emerging technologies teams create value for libraries and their plans to expand that value in the future.
