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.

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.
