Who represents you at the state or national level at ALA? Now you can put a face to a name. While I have picky design issues with this page I think it’s a great step forward towards transparency and accessibility to an otherwise large and sometimes intractable organization. Nice job!
I met Michael Habib when I was down at UNC Chapel Hill last year and I think now we’re associated via various social networks. I caught his blog post Academic Library 2.0 Concept Models and I think you’ll like it if you’ve been wondering where social software fits in an academic library environment. Hot Venn Diagrams! Available for hire 2.0 librarian!
I have no idea how Meredith writes as much and as cogently as she does. As I have been sputtering around thinking about DOPA, she’s helping solve the problem. Remember how I said you really need to learn about this social software thing, before they make laws that you don’t understand about tools you’ve never used? Go, right now, and read her well thought out and well-researched post about Libraries and Social Networking Software. If you’re on facebook or myspace, look me up and poke me.
