I’m in Aberdeen, South Dakota on Monday, presenting a workshop for the South Dakota State Library Training Institute. I’m presenting a day on Marketing and Library 2.o, and I’m honored and delighted that they asked me to come and work with them!
I’ll be driving to South Dakota, since the airfare from Rochester to Aberdeen cost more than a ticket to London. (Ridiculous.) As a result, I’ll be able to stop by the University of Minnesota-Morris campus on the way home and get to know my compatriots at the library there.
At the end of the month, I’ll be heading to ALA in Anaheim and will be part of an OCLC symposium on The Mashed Up Library. It’s on Friday, June 27th from 1:30 to 4:00 at the Anaheim Marriott. I’ll be part of a panel that includes Susan Gibbons from the University of Rochester (no, the other one) and David Lee King. Michael Schrage, Research fellow at the MIT Sloan Center for Digital Business will be the keynote speaker. We’ll be talking about innovation and mashups and there will be ice cream. (Always a good reason for attending – a hot afternoon in southern California requires ice cream.)
In July, Aurora and I will be chatting with the folks at the Metropolitan Library System in Burr Ridge, Illinois about Advocacy 2.0 and mashups. We’ll be presenting a morning workshop on July 15th for the librarians.
Actually, I’m honored and delighted that all of these folks thought to ask me to participate in their functions. What fun!
