That Human Voice & Connection

http://www.darienlibrary.org/catalog/books/2012/03/09/you-are-what-you-read Today, I’m enjoying reading the above post from the good folks at Darien Library. This is one of many posts that shares what everyone is reading in the Reader’s Advisors group. The human voice that comes through is pleasant and conversational. This may be something to roll into my courses – practical experience being the human voice of the library!

See You at PLA! Presentation at SJSU SLIS Exhibit Space

If you’re attending PLA next week, please look for me at the SJSU SLIS Exhibit Space at Booth 2100. I’m doing a short presentation: Dr. Michael Stephens Thursday, March 15 3:00 pm–3:30 pm  & Friday, March 16 11:30 am–12:00 pm Hyperlinked Libraries: Emerging Tech & Emerging Trends: What trends and technologies are impacting public library service? What does the evolution of library physical and virtual space look like? This presentation explores the hyperlinked library model through a lens of participatory service, transparency and emerging technologies. I’m happy to chat with anyone about our programs and opportunities for learning.
