Conference presentations

Many of the News Division-sponsored presentations that I attended at the Special Libraries Association's annual conference are now available on the Division's Web site. Among my favorites was a session that looked at four newsroom wikis, "Keeping Current," which explored how librarians can stay up to date on the various trends and technological tools that we are innudated with on a daily basis and a presentation by my colleague and fellow SLIS grad Debra Bade, about her efforts to record the knowledge and memories of longtime employees of the Chicago Tribune.

One thing the Division is very proud of is that each session was recorded, which will enable us to offer podcasts in the near future. Stay tuned for information on when those will be posted.
