Hello all,

I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve created a group in Flickr and an event in Facebook.

Here are the details…

Also, I have one suggestion. If we have members, etc., blogging about/at the conference, I’d suggest using the Technorati tag ARLISNA08. This will allow someone to easily discover new content about the conference, sessions, etc.-even if it is spread out all over the blog universe. Techno-who you ask? They’re basically a blog tracking service. For more about Technorati, see their about page at http://technorati.com/about/

Thanks,

Bryan Loar

This Denver First is a series of webcast interviews on a variety of “tech” topics. This approach is organized by Sarah Falls, who will be in the Exhibits area Sat afternoon to discuss the webcasts with attendees.

Web 2.0 Kiosk

Located in the Exhibits, this Denver First has members helping members with technology one on one. A team put together by Rebecca Cooper will be available Sat. and Sun. mornings to assist anyone interested in trying out various pieces of Web 2.0 technology.

Virtual posters:

ARLIS/NA is borrowing an idea from our ALA Art Section and Instruction Section colleagues — the virtual poster session. Three session moderators have agreed to complement their physical session with online posters, allowing wider participation and contribution of topics in this “Denver First.”

The Denver conference is breaking new ground for the ARLIS/NA conference experience. One of those ways are virtual poster sessions!!Three of the program sessions will be complementing their speaker lineup with virtual posters to be accessed through the conference web site blog. Those three sessions are
Visual Pedagogy: Do you See What I See? — moderated by Sarah Carter and Marilyn Berger; What’s Hot & What’s Not, Trends in Technologies and Services in Libraries — moderated by Joan Stahl; and Scalable Digital Projects: How to Get Started with Small Digital Projects — moderated by Ellen Petraits and Claudia Covert. Interaction with the virtual poster presenters is encouraged through online comments.

The more traditional and still much appreciated format of physical poster sessions will be held in the Exhibits area on Saturday and Sunday mornings. You can talk in-person to presenters on a variety of poster topics, including instruction, the WOM-Art wikipedia project, enhancing the visibility of electronic journals, plagiarism, art students in the central library, and more! [See the conference program for the complete list of poster sessions.]

Session moderators: it is not too late to add the virtual poster component to your session. If you had more speakers than the session had time for, please consider it as a possibility!
