Continuous learning for your inner geek in 2006 @ LCLS

In February LCLS will host Aaron Schmidt who will be presenting a session on using IM (Instant Messaging) for reference. A few weeks after that (mid-february), I will be hosting a follow up session that will focus strictly on IM software, and setting it up on the PCs in your library.

Near the end of February I plan on holding a session on Blogs, RSS, and Social Bookmarking websites and how you can use these free online tools to reach your patrons. I will have numerous examples of these tools being used by other libraries, as well as showing how LCLS has started using a few of these tools to reach our member libraries.

Also, look for a gaming in libraries session sometime as well (late spring 2006) where I will cover the topic of gaming in libraries and how other libraries are using it. This will be my follow up after attending the Gaming in Libraries Symposium hosted by MLS in Chicago.

Keep an eye on CLeO and our event calendar for these events!

If you are interested in these events let me know. Also, if you are using IM, Blogs/RSS, or a Social Bookmarking site (like in your library, let me know, especially if you are from Illinois, or better yet, a member of LCLS.

What are all these things you ask?? Attend the events and I guarantee you will know!!

Saw that you're going to be doing a presentation on RSS among other things and wanted to point you to an event my company filmed for the Producers Guild of America.

The topic is RSS and the discussion was about how RSS (and in particular, podcasting) is changing publishing.

You can register (free) and log in at .

Once inside you can either watch the video, download the audio or subscribe to the podcast.

The panelists for the evening included:

Shelly Palmer, Moderator
Chairman, Advanced Media Committee of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), New York

Jason McCabe Calacanis
Chairman and co-founder, Weblogs, Inc.

Robert Spier
