Another digital reference blog

How could I have missed another blog with a name just ever so slightly different from mine? The MINITEX Digital Reference blog has archived posts going back to July 2006. I wish I had been subscribing to the blog from its inception, as there's been a lot of good content published in the past year. I'm going to take a close look now at all the blog posts that offer detailed notes about each session from the Collaborative Virtual Reference Symposium that took place in July in Denver (please note that the links below may require you to scroll to get to the actual post):

Tune in to Steven Bell live tomorrow

I'll be at the LACUNY Institute tomorrow, which is about the easiest conference in the world for me to attend, as it is held every May four floors above me in the library building here at Baruch College. For those of you like me who find it hard to get to conferences out of town, you might be interested to know that Baruch is trying an experiment of livestreaming the keynote speaker, Steven Bell, whose talk is titled “Reversing the Technology Ratchet: Using Design Thinking to Align Hi-Tech and Hi-Touch” (description here). Tune in by 9:15 am EST.

On his post today on Designing Better Libraries, Bell reminded me of the plan to stream his presentation. If the camera happens to pan the room, look for me (I'll try to wave).

Just a quick note to "save the date" for Tuesday, August 14, 2007, which will be when the William and Anita Newman Library at Baruch College is hosting Library Camp NYC. There will be no charge for attendees. Details can be found on the Library Camp NYC wiki.

Registration is now open for the 2007 Collaborative Reference Symposium, which will be held in Denver on July 31 and August 1 this year. I hope it gets blogged well by attendees, as I'll be unable to attend.
