Daily Thoughts 12/15/2012
I joined ASIS&T (American Society for Information Science and Technology) today. I also joined their Digital Libraries special interest group. I had been to one of their meetings and found it very interesting. It is a change of focus for me from joining the American Library Association.
I also spent a little bit of time checking the library Facebook and Twitter pages.
I am going to try and go to the New York City Data Business Meetup this Tuesday. http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Data-Business-Meetup/
I am also interested in other librarian and publisher oriented events, especially those that crossover between publishing and libraries.
This afternoon, I read some more of Management Basics for Information Professionals. Right now, I am reading the chapter on communication. I rather like the description of how library jargon is often not understood by library patrons. There is a lot of technical language which can be confusing.
I keep track of what is happening at the Mount Vernon Public Library using Google Alerts. It is useful. http://www.google.com/alerts
