Happy New Social Media Year

Here at Infopeople, the new year brings a generous buffet of free webinars, high ROI online courses, and a variety of special projects. You'll continue to hear about these from time to time right here on the Infoblog.

This blog, of course, is one form of social media we use to spread news, ideas and experiences to you, our community of librarians, library fans, library lovers and cognescenti. We are stirring the pot in some other social media channels as well:

Sights to See and Goodies to Find!

Exhibits open this Friday, at 3 pm, in the San Jose Convention Center. Be sure to arrive and get your badge in time to join the excitement! CLA  exhibitors, of course, include a variety of businesses providing library-specific goods and services. But there are also nonprofits that provide essential library and library staff services year round and provide valuable presence in the exhibit hall as well.

Countdown to Colorado…

“Poetry and Hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. And all you can do is go where they can find you.” -Winnie-the-Pooh

I’m grateful to Infopeople for providing me with an opportunity to attend the Risk & Reward Conference, and I’m hoping inspiration and a-ha moments find me in Colorado next month.

I'm Going to R-Squared! (P.C. Sweeney)

I’m excited to be attending the R-Squared conference in Telluride!  I have been trying to write about my expectations for this conference but while I am excited, I also don’t have any expectations so I’m going to write about what I’m excited about.
