More on Google Presentations

I mentioned how nifty Google Presentations was a couple of weeks ago, but last night I found a flaw. I was on a conference call with a few colleagues who I’ll be presenting with later this month and we were using this tool to edit our presentation. One of the people on the phone wanted to send us a link so he posted it in the chat window attached to  [ Read More ]

Wish I was there!

Over at LibrarianInBlack there is a summary of Stephen Abram’s Keynote at CLA 2006. There is so much I want to quote! I wish I was there! Stephen talked about anegnosis–that we don’t want to admit that things are changing, a resistance to new knowledge. He talked about the fact that we need to focus on the overall user experience with our online resources. Our comfort with the catalog doesn’t  [ Read More ]

Conflict Management

I just attended an amazing webinar hosted by the SirsiDynix Institute on Library Conflict Management.

We did some surveys at the beginning to see what we were there and most of the people were there to learn how  [ Read More ]

All Day Event

So this morning I got into work to find that I couldn’t open any of the files on our Intranet! Uh Oh!! The problem is that I get to work at 7:30am and the IT staff doesn’t arrive until 9am or later. So I twiddled my thumbs and read some blog posts. Turns out that one of the hard drives died – on our NEW server!! Anyway, when I left  [ Read More ]

Great Webinar

Today I attended Weblogs & Libraries: Communication, Conversation, and the Blog People presented by Michael Stephens.

I can’t wait for the archived file to show up so that I can hear the parts I missed.
