I’m lucky enough to be speaking at next month’s Online Information 2008 conference in London, where I’ll be speaking about new media channels for libraries (in other words, getting your content out in front of users where they already are). I’m in the Brave New World for Libraries and Publishers track on day one, but there are many sessions at this media conference that should be of interest to librarians. I’m looking forward to seeing sessions in the Order Out of Chaos: Creating Structure in Our Universe and Information Professionals Surviving and Thriving in the New Age, among others. I’ll also be moderating the Knowledge Structuring in a Semantic World session on day two.
The conference organizers have just posted a podcast interview with me, which is just one in a series with some of the speakers. They’ve organized quite a line-up of presenters, starting with conference opener Clay Shirky (hear his interview here). If you’ve never heard Clay speak, I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. I guarantee you won’t regret it.
Please feel free to submit questions ahead of time, and if you’re attending, please introduce yourself. Also, I’m still looking for examples of libraries taking advantage of RSS to display their content on external sites. If you know of any, please leave me a comment here.
