My colleague (& partner in crime) and I are currently putting the final touches on the workshop we’ve been preparing for the Library Technology Conference at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, in little over a week. We’re giving a 90 minute hands-on workshop called “Second Life and Twitter for Librarians: Virtual Tools for Building Local and Global Networks.” Angela will be speaking about Second Life,and I will be speaking about Twitter.
I’m excited, but also pretty nervous!
I’m really looking forward to visiting Macalester, which is where I earned my undergraduate degree. Sad, though, that my most favorite professors have all already retired or moved on to other Universities. It really wasn’t that long ago, guys!
Anyway, I will surely be posting more about the conference before, during and after the fact. Next Wednesday March 10, SLIS is hosting a dry-run of our workshop at noon in the U of I Main Library Computer Lab 3092, with cookies!
