I'll be heading to Washington this weekend to attend the annual Computers in Libraries conference put on by ITI. I'll be speaking with Michael Stephens about transparency and libraries (see below). Looking forward to seeing some friends that I've not seen in far too long.
Session E202 – Transparency, Planning, & Change: See-Through Libraries
Tuesday 11:30 AM – 12:15 PM
Michael Casey, Division Director – Technology, Gwinnett Public Library
Michael Stephens, Assistant Professor, Dominican University
Integrating technology, change management and planning, this session focuses on making the right choices for social software, staff training, and the creation of a user-driven environment. Our two leading librarians explore what makes a library transparent; offer a to-do list of strategies to make your library transparent, open, and hyperlinked; and offer a list of best practices for Web 2.0 tools, implementation, and evaluation.
