Hi all--

I'm looking for suggestions for good speakers, people who might be interested in speaking on a panel for ALA 2009 (Chicago). The topic is "Life After 2.0" and the focus will be on the success (or not, as the case might be) of some of these web 2.0 technologies as they have been implemented into various library applications.

Do you have any suggestions for me?

Hi Amy,

Perhaps you can get in touch with some of the people who were involved with a recent conference at Berkeley entitled "Building Academic Library 2.0." My apologies if you already thought of this! :)

I became aware of the conference through YouTube when i was searching "Library" stuff.

Here's a link to the 70-minute video featuring the keynote speaker, Meredith Farkas (my current professor), and others:


I haven't seen the entire video yet, but assume that it identifies names in the credits at the end.

Good luck with planning for the ALA conference in 2009!


P.S. If you would like to get in touch with me -- (since I currently have immediate access to Meredith Farkas) -- feel free to email me at randrade@lmu.edu.

Take care! :)

P.S.S. I'll try to embed the actual video here -- just for good measure! ...

Thanks for the suggestion, Raymond! And for including the video! Yes, I know Meredith Farkas -- I saw her speak at ALA last summer in D.C. and she was fantastic! She would be a wonderful person to have on the panel. Will watch the video for more ideas ....

I attended the Berkeley conference in November. They still have the site up with the speakers' bios:

Good luck.
