I’m honored to be taking part in this ongoing series. Get a load of the roster for 2008!
The archives for conversationalists Aaron Schmidt and Meredith Farkas is here: http://www.opal-online.org/archivelis.htm
The Casual Conversations series is designed to be up-close and personal from a respectable online distance. While there are many conferences (in-person, online, and in-world) where librarians can hear leaders in the field make formal presentations about interesting projects, there are few opportunities to hear these same leaders discuss informally what they currently are working on, their future plans and goals, the challenges and opportunities facing librarianship, their personal pet peeves, etc.
Watch for more information about these upcoming Casual Conversations:
