I get to go to the MLA 2008 Annual Meeting and I’m awfully excited about it.
More details later, but right now I’m looking for advice from you. I’d especially looking for thoughts from those who plan to attend, but I’d also love to hear from physicians and other health care professionals.
I’m going to be participating in a few sessions- all involve the use of Web geekery in medical libraries. In one session I’m giving a talk (with a co-presenter whose work I really admire but whom I’ve never met) about the use of social technologies in medical libraries (and /or by medical libraryfolk). Here’s stuff I’m looking for your thoughts on:
- What technologies or trends should we talk about? Which ones have you heard enough about and which ones do you need to know more about?
- What issues should we talk about?
- What are the obstacles to use that we should address?
- What do you think are the most important things to emphasize? What’re the things that you’re worried might NOT be emphasized?
All opinions and ideas are welcome from all quarters and all comers.
