Internet Librarian 2006

Due to vacation, work and Blogger difficulties I'm way behind on this one. But the preliminary program for Internet Librarian 2006 is now online. I'm excited to be part of this podcasting/ videocasting panel on Tuesday, October 24th with a bunch of great folks!

Sessions D201 & D202 — Podcasting & Videocasting
10:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Greg Schwartz, Louisville Free Public Library, & Publisher, Open Stacks Weblog
Jill C. Konieczko, Library Director, U.S. News & World Report
Sean Cordes, Assistant Professor, Iowa State University
Jeff Humphrey, Interactive Media Specialist, INCOLSA
David Free, Public Services Librarian, Georgia Perimeter College
David King, Kansas City Public Library

Playable on personal computers, PDAs and iPods (thus the “pod” in podcast), podcasts are inexpensive and easy to produce and distribute. This session starts with the basics of how to actually do podcasting, including the technology, software, etc. It then illustrates how various libraries are using podcasts for staff development, training, and learning. David King defines videocasting and provides examples, describes how to create and aggregate a videocast, and illustrates how a videocast can be used on a library Web site.

This will be my first IL conference and trip to Monterey, so I'm psyched. Going to spend a couple of days in San Francisco before the conference and drive down PCH to Monterey. Should be a great conference/ vacation.
