Or so the saying goes, when referring to weather in March. My March is shaping up to be a quite a roarin’ month indeed.
March 6-7, I’ll be giving two presentations at the Ohio Digital Commons for Education conference in Columbus, Ohio. The title of my first talk is “Using Wikis and Blogs to Promote Information Literacy Skills and Library Resources” and my second is “IM a Librarian: Instant Messaging Reference in an Academic Library.”
March 22-34, I’ll be in Washington, D.C. at Computers in Libraries. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to speak on two different occasions there as well. I’ll be talking about my use of a wiki as a research guide in both the Communities and Collaboration track (Wikis in Action, C101 & 102) and in the Learning track (Information Literacy and Instruction, C204). My conference schedule is available on the Computers in Libraries wiki.
Finally, my proposal to HigherEd BlogCon 2006 was accepted. The title of that “presentation” is “Blogs, Wikis, and IM: Communication Tools for Subject Specialists”. While the conference is not taking place until April, my presentation is due this month.
I’m incredibly excited by all these opportunities to share, but I’m even more elated about the perks that come with sharing: meeting new colleagues, making new friends, learning from others, and contributing to the profession. If you’re coming to any of these conferences/presentations, I welcome the opportunity to meet you and talk a little shop. See you there!
