Co-worker and buddy Aurora and I have attended Internet Librarian two years in a row. The first was very shortly after both of us were hired, and so it was an educational experience both from the conference standpoint and from the standpoint of getting to know someone you’ve just met. Luckily, we get along just fine and had a great time.
It was that first conference that motivated both of us to come home and start a blog.
My how times have changed!
We just got word late last week that our speaking proposal for IL2007 has been accepted:
3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
D105 Advocacy 2.0
Aurora Jacobsen, Information Services Librarian, & Mary Beth Sancomb-Moran, Advocacy Coordinator,Southeastern Libraries Cooperating (SELCO)
Librarians are continuing to work on increasing visibility within our communities and with our political leaders. To increase our politicians’ knowledge of libraries, we must become advocates. As politicians are increasingly using Web 2.0 tools, are we ready to meet them in this new arena? This session discusses the ways to use Web 2.0 technology to reach our legislators, find demographic information, and provide an overview of the ways government is reaching out to our community.
How cool is that?! Monterey, here we come again…..
