Useful Articles for Librarians

I'm receiving everyday e-mails with links to useful blog posts, reports. I don't have any more time to read, to bookmark them or just save. So today I just decided to post on the blog a few that of interest and I will remember at a later stage, where to find and read:

Internet Librarian International 2011 Conference

Recently I attended the Internet Librarian International Conference in London, 26-28 October 2011. I also presented on the 28th October in C204: New Skills for the New Normal.

The presentation focuses on how the role of the academic librarians changes from traditional, to technological & social, to mobile and embedded librarian. To adapt to the changing environment the librarians need to adapt and develop new skills and play new roles. I'm providing some practical examples from my experiences.

Overall the ILI 2011 was a very successful and enlighting conference.

If you want to learn more about the ILI topics, discussions, links to presentations, etc. these are some useful blog posts, tweets, slide share presentations, statistics, etc.:

Those who did not attended the ILI 2011 Conference can have a good grasp of what was discussed, emerging trends, practical tips and new networking possibilities
