Michael Casey and I weigh in on the ongoing discussions of Library 2.0 and call for the next wave: stepping stones to best practice and more. http://www.techsource.ala.org/blog/2006/01/better-library-services-for-more-people.html The next few steps, after all this discussion—and after the dust has settled from some virtual sparring—should manifest in the form of “stepping-stones”: let’s move from discussion only to developing and implementing best practices for Web 2.0 tools, to “How-we-did-it-and-did-it-good” case studies, and to empirically based discussions about our “We-tried-it-and-it-failed” lessons. And let’s keep looking for the best ways to serve our users, wherever they are.
Greetings from San Antonio & the Association for Library and Information Science Education (ALISE)Conference! We gathered last night at the Omni Hotel. Today we are prepping our posters, which were printed for us at UNT, having a group lunch, and finding our way around this conference. We set up posters at 5:30pm and the Works in Progress Session and Reception starts at 6pm. I have my poster, cards, handout, and a bibliography for interested folks.
