Attention all library folk who will be in the Montreal area (or able to get here) next month: McGill’s School of Information Studies (SIS) will be hosting the 2nd Annual Web 2.You Conference on February 13, 2009. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to organize the follow-up to the event that first inspired me to start blogging. This full-day event will feature presentations about Web 2.0 in libraries and the LIS field from a few of my favourite people:
The Hyperlinked Library
Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Library and Information Science, Dominican University, River Forest, Illinois
Shift Happens 2.0: What on earth is happening and how will it affect libraryland?
Vice President of Innovation, SirsiDynix, Toronto, Ontario
Joining the discussion: Using social networks for professional development (or developing into a professional)
Liaison Librarian, Howard Ross Library of Management, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec
There will also be presentations from some of the best and brightest students SIS has to offer.
I would absolutely love to meet some ILSS readers, so be sure to drop me a line if you’re able to come. I’ve put a lot of work into organizing this event (along with my co-organizer, Amanda Halfpenny), and it’s shaping up to be a great day.
Registration is very affordable and now open – for more info, check out the Web 2.You wiki.
See you there!
