For any librarians in the Indiana area — Bloomington and Indianapolis specifically — I’ll be giving two talks next week. On Thursday the 15th I’ll be talking about libraries and technology with students of the library school at Indiana University [flyer1, flyer 2] at 6 pm. Then I scoot off to the Indiana Library Federation Reference Division conference where I’ll be talking about… libraries and technology on Friday at 10 am [flyer]. Right now I am newly back from a six day trip to New York City where I went to a wedding, visited a new library and celebrated my birthday. I just discovered Eric Lease Morgan’s Keynote from ILF annual So you want a new website. He quotes Ranganathan and says really sane things about usability testing, specifically about the idea of ascertaining success.
