Thanks everyone for a great first day of presentations. I really enjoyed talking with the attendees in the morning session and the staff of Macquarie University Library in the afternoon. I caught a nasty bug on the plane that has taken a bit of wind out of my sails, but I’m feeling better now. 🙁

Welcome Originally uploaded by mstephens7 Arrived safe and sound. I look forward to the first presentations on Tuesday. Off to enjoy summer! (Sorry Chicago folk)
Don’t miss the newly remodeled Swiss Army Librarian, I’ve really enjoyed some recent posts about open source, book suggestion links and a category devoted to reference questions. Social media in the 1990s – remember the days? The ALA Code is Not Enough: Fascinating thinking from the Other Librarian. Adding to course readings.
I read with interest this article at U.S. News &World Report: Professor, Day in the Life After that, you check out an online discussion that’s part of an Internet class you’re teaching. You post a couple of comments and answer a dozen student E-mails. Next, it’s off to a faculty meeting. Your department is debating whether to add another master’s degree to its offerings, and the discussion is dominated by a powerful faculty member who argues that an esoteric course—which happens to be in his area of expertise—is essential. Finally, you get to work on a textbook chapter you’ve been […]

Via Sean: http://www-03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/23516.wss It seems IBM is getting into designing 2.0 applications with UCLA students. Here’s the part of the article that really caught my eye: Choose Your Own Technology Adventure at UCLA To help prepare students for the ongoing demand for open computing skills is a class project IBM pioneered for UCLA’s CS130 Computer Science class. “Choose your own (technology) adventure” operates on a simple principle — harnesses students’ interest-areas to shape the coursework rather than on standard textbooks and syllabi. Selecting from open technology areas, students propose their own course projects, ranging from a mobile phone mashup that […]
Via LISnews: http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2008/02/19/opensource There’s a “growing disconnect in what we’re being provided from commercial companies … and what libraries are starting to realize they need,” he said, but libraries aren’t blameless either: He believes they need to communicate more effectively the features and functionality they require. And just because it’s open source doesn’t mean it’s better. Soon enough, Gibbons suggested, open source innovations might spur competition and eventually result in more and better choices in the consumer market.
http://blogs.liblime.com/open-sesame/ Don’t miss Open Sesame where Open Source Evangelist Nicole Engard will be blogging and sharing: This blog will be my platform and I want to hear from all of you who have stories to share or questions to ask. I want to learn from you as you learn from me and others. If you’ve heard me talk before you know that I’m an advocate for open-source solutions in libraries, I’ve found that the open-source community and the library community both follow a similar set of guidelines, making them the perfect partners in a push for change and enhancements for […]
