Today is my first day back in the library after attending (and presenting at) the Computers in Libraries conference in Arlington, VA. The weather was well, crap, but at least we had plenty to keep us engaged during the very eventful 3-day conference. As promised to many of you great folks who were hanging with us until the bitter end (yes, we were scheduled for the last session block on day three of the conference, which I was assured by some veteran presenters is the MO of the program planners to vet the newbs), I’m posting the Vidcasting presentation slides.
If yesterday was April’s Fool I would pretend it was a joke, since it was a day later I want to correct a mistake about the LGBTQ exhibit news announcement on our web site. It is not an organization with a 150 years old tradition but it celebrates just 15 years. If my mistake would be a true fact
Best to all,
Well, I’m happy to report that after nearly a year’s worth of discussion and soul searching (what else is new in academe?) we’re pleased to introduce the Burritt Library blog! The blog addresses two needs that several of us in the building have been grappling with– 1) to find a more informal way of connecting with you, our wonderful user community, so that we may regale you with all the fabulous things going on, both within our sadly nondescript walls and beyond, and accordingly 2) to provide a mechanism for you to connect with us! I’m delighted that a number of my colleagues in the various departments of the library were interested in contributing to our blogging venture when Edward and I first put out the call for bloggahs. Though we may all work in the library, we are by no means a monolithic entity; many of us have vastly differing job responsibilities as well as points of view– as you will soon find out! Cheers!
