Slides from Internet Librarian October 26, 2006

Posted by nanette in IL2006.

Here are the PowerPoint slides from my presentation at Internet Librarian 2006. I added a few weblinks for people who weren’t at the presentation.

I’ve read some very complimentary blog posts commending me on how well I did, which is extremely flattering, especially since this was my first “big” conference presentation. I’ve moderated panels and done introductions and stuff like that before, but I had never made a presentation. It was a lot of fun and I am certainly looking forward to doing it again!

As I said in my last post, I’ll elaborate on the slides further over the next few days. I need to spend the rest of my afternoon catching up at work.

I am a high school librarian and have the same concerns regarding catalogs and subscription databases; they require too many clicks to get to, controlled vocabulary that most people don’t use when searching search engines and most of all too little success. They can use a search engine, type their terms and get zillion of hits, now that makes them feel successful. If the answer is not there a librarian is near to provide the answer. The whole publishing industry as well as library software providers better wake up! Any online bookstore does a better job of locating books that I need or want.
