Celebrating National Library Week

Next week is National Library Week and at Jenkins we offer a week packed with CLE (Continuing Legal Education) classes – and one class by me on web design. This year we’re offering a Blog & RSS course for the first time – YIPPPEEE! But the real reason I’m sharing this with you all is that we just sent out an email to GPLLA (Greater Philadelphia Law Library Association) inviting members to join us in our Multi-Purpose room for Michael Stephen’s OPAL event.

OPAL is an international collaborative effort by libraries of all types to provide web-based programs and training for library users and library staff members. These live events are held in online rooms where participants can interact via voice-over-IP, text chatting, and synchronized browsing.

You are invited to join the staff at Jenkins and other members of GPLLA for an online technology program during National Library Week.

Ten Top Technologies for Librarians in 2006
April 6, 2006, Thursday – 3pm – 4pm (Multi-Purpose Room at Jenkins Law Library)
What trends should librarians be watching? What’s the next big thing? Join librarian and Tame the Web blogger Michael Stephens for a discussion of ten technologies to be aware of in 2006 and beyond. We’ll touch on user-centered planning, changes to integrated library systems, conversations, communities, and the Cluetrain.

To RSVP, please reply to this message by April 5th.
