What do you think of these? I sent them off to Jane Dysart while Ari napped.
Preconference Workshop – 3 Hours
130 Web Tips, Tricks, Tools, and Resources in 160 minutes
Get your coffee ready because you’ll need to be wide awake for 3 hours of Steven Cohen’s favorite online tips, tricks, tools, and resources. Cohen will be revealing which tools assist in making users, colleagues, and family members happy. From Firefox plugins to Web 2.0 startups to mashups to RSS tricks, attendees of this workshop will leave with an arsenal of information and applications to bring back to their organization. Knowledge is power and this workshop will assist librarians of all specialties in becoming current and up to date with the new and most exciting web tools available.
What’s Hot in RSS and Social “Softwr”
Social Software is rapidly changing the way we provide information to our consumers, work together in an organizational structure, and communicate. This session highlights cutting-edge tools and techniques for libraries, hot new trends, resources, and advice. Jam packed with Cohen’s A-Z listing of the hot social software and RSS tools on the market today, prizes will also be awarded for answers to “tough” questions. This is also a participatory meeting of the minds as any audience member will be invited up to the podium to show off their favorite social software tools.
