Thanks to the Smithsonian Libraries Facebook fan page, I have found three great lectures I plan to watch during my holiday vacation!
- R. David Lankes: ” Not Done Yet: Charting a new Course for Librarianship“; you can read more about Lankes and his research interests at this Facebook event page. If you are interested in participatory librarianship, this is “must see” viewing for you.
- David Weinberger: “Knowledge, Noise, and the End of Information“; you can read more about this lecture and Weinberger’s work at this Facebook event page. You may also want to read this blog post from someone who watched the webinar!
- Roy Tenant: “Libraries in a Networked World“; you can read more about this webinar at this Facebook event page. You can also read his blog at Library Journal.
I feel these webinars are of interest to all librarians whatever your area of specialty may be as these webinars address how Web 2.0 tools, the Internet, and social networking are impacting the access and sharing of information and knowledge. Get a cup of hot chocolate, your laptop, and tune in!
This lectures are part of the series on the future of libraries, museums and archives given in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Smithsonian Institution Libraries. They are sponsored by Smithsonian Institution Libraries, the Office of the Chief Information Officer, and Smithsonian Institution Archives.
