Libraries are for Use

Demonstrating the value of librarianship

Library 2.012 Virtual Conference – FREE!


Given all the cuts to libraries and particularly to librarian professional development (including travel), I actively seek and would like to promote those opportunities that are cost-effective.  And how much more cost-effective can you get with something that is free?  (OK, your time is money, but eliminating conference fees and travel expenses boosts the cost-effective equation tremendously.)

The Library 2.012 Virtual Conference is next week and there are 148 presentations (and counting) scheduled over 2 days.  They cover six different “strands”:

  • STRAND 1: Libraries – Physical and Virtual Learning Spaces
  • STRAND 2: Librarians & Information Professionals – Evolving Professional Roles in Today’s World
  • STRAND 3: Content & Creation – Organizing and Creating Information
  • STRAND 4: Changing Delivery Methods
  • STRAND 5: User Centered Access
  • STRAND 6: Mobile and Geo-Social Information Environments
Here is a sampling of the presentations:
OK, I confess…the list is a bit biased…the last two are mine.  I hope these will be a stimulating look at what our patrons have selected and how they compare with our print and EBSCO eBooks collection.  This will be my first presentations using WeCollaborate, which provides a slightly more interactive environment than simple webcasting.
But even if my topic of demand-driven acquisitions is not on your radar, consider taking a moment to look at the options available and take advantage of this opportunity to see what others have done.
