Internet Librarian 2012 on Twitter

Twitter at #InternetLibrarian

You can stay on top of all things Internet Librarian by following @LibConf during the event but you can see a lot more by following the presenters on Twitter as well.

Check back here for tips, networking opportunities, and information to make your stay in Monterey pleasant and productive.

The transformational power of Internet Librarians relies on the ability of like-minded, technology-oriented peers to find each other, collaborate, engage in critical discussion, address current challenges, and work together in the profession at large to meet the changing needs of libraries.

The twitter tag for this year’s event is #InternetLibrarian.

Follow the #CILDC Speakers on Twitter

Since we are using the @Anywhere service from Twitter on LibConf.com I decided to list all the speakers at this year’s conference who included Twitter accounts in their profile to make it easier to follow them via their hover badges.  This page may take a while to load.

Better Know a Hashtag

As noted on the official Computers in Libraries site and in the Final Program (PDF) the official hashtag for Computers in Libraries 2012 is #CILDC.

Please use #CILDC

Please use #CILDC

There are a few reasons for this.  In past years we have come into conflict with other groups using #CIL<year> including one year when our event took place concurrently with an S&M event in Cairo Egypt that happened to have the same CIL initials.

Also, a “tweet record” includes a date so it is pretty easy to figure out which Computers in Libraries conference a tweet is referring to when you see it.

And finally, there is no reason anymore to treat Twitter like a passing fad or only a website based service.  People use a wide array of Twitter clients and by using a consistent tag — year after year — people who program saved searches into their Twitter clients will see the tweets about each years events as early as they wish to.  This means they do not miss the Call for Speakers alerts or questions from the planners and organizers.

Tweet Archive

This year we will again be archiving conference tweets and making them available after the event ends.  The only hashtag our archival system will be watching for is #CILDC.  If you wish to ensure your tweets make it into the archive, please use that hashtag. If you use others it will not prevent archiving as long as that tag is somewhere in your tweet.

Will you be blogging from Computers in Libraries 2012?

Register your Blog

Register your Blog

If you plan to blog from the conference, please let us know so we can add you to our list of bloggers.  We have a simple form here at LibConf to let you do just that.

Bloggers who add themselves to the registry can also include their Twitter name so interested folks can follow along with the you that way too.

If you are both blogging and speaking, please be sure to include your session ID’s as well.  If you are not sure of your session numbers, they can be found on your speaker profile page via the Computers in Libraries speaker directory.

You can follow our official Twitter account through @LibConf.

The Power of Twitter!

A conference program planners dream!

Yesterday one of today’s CIO keynote panel had to drop out of the Internet Librarian 2010 program. Many conference programmers would run screaming to the bar, but this calm program developer went to Twitter via @jdysart and announced that she had lost a speaker and were there any public library CIOs out there who might be willing to fill in.

I got an answer from a first time attendee at Internet Librarian, Jim Peterson, who said he was a Technology Coordinator (not a CIO, and the only member of the IT staff) for a public library in Franklin, KY. He agreed to meet me at the Information Today booth during last evenings reception and we had a great conversation. He was hired as our new panelist on the spot.

Hopefully you all got to hear how articulate and on point he was this morning. Such a good fit with Mike Ridley, CIO & Chief Librarian at the University of Guelph and Donna Scheeder, Deputy CIO, Congressional Research Service.

They did a terrific job!
