Columnists moving to Blogs?

I just read that Roy will no longer be writing his column for Library Journal – but will continue to blog – an option he didn’t have when he started out 10 years ago. Blogs didn’t exist then either. But since they do now it seems like a fairly good platform for continuing my coverage of all things digital that impact libraries. I can be as timely as I want,  [ Read More ]

Publications & Presentations Page Updated

I have updated my Publications & Presentations page to include links to my most recent presentations and the citation for my most recent article. Note that the presentations regarding the Intranet all include links to the Flickr set for screenshots (since I usually do these presentations live on our Intranet – and I can’t share that info with you).

New Pages

I added a few new pages – and updated some of the old pages. For those of you who only read this blog via RSS, you may not have noticed. On the right menu of this site I have included a link to an About Me page. I used to link to my bio on the Jenkins site – but that is skewed towards what I’ve done for the library  [ Read More ]

Another Article

I mentioned that I was writing another article last week. Well I finished it and sent it in – I don’t know yet if it will be published, but I thought I’d share some of the ideas with you all. I decided to take 2 routes. Route 1 was deciding to get someone in house to handle your library programming projects (versus a contractor) and Route 2 was how to  [ Read More ]
