|iPad? I want! This could be yours at SLA :)|
If you're planning on coming out to New Orleans this year for SLA, we have a few exciting things lined up at our booth. For one thing, you'll be able to check out the latest in Social Knowledge Networks (SKN) and social library solutions, including our Presto technology.
Plus when you have your badge scanned, you'll be entered to win an Apple iPad on us. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
If you've been around the information management block, I don't need to tell you the SLA Conference is a great way to learn about the latest and greatest technologies and services in our industry. I'm looking forward to a few of the workshops this year too.
I strongly recommend "Developing an Effective Strategic Plan for Your Library" by information management consultant Cindy Sullivan. It'll be an interactive session covering why you should develop a strategic library plan and the 11 crucial plan elements.
Cindy has deep expertise and experience managing research and information in a global financial services organizations, including Fidelity. Our blogging team just interviewed her today for a podcast, which we'll have on the blog next week.
I know not everyone can make their way to the Big Easy this year. We'll do our best to post updates from the show floor so you can follow the various happenings we're seeing. And when our team returns home, we'll have our reactions on how things went for you on the blog as well. Another handy resource is the SLA conference Twitter hashtag, #SLA2010.
Stay tuned for other updates as SLA approaches! Hopefully I'll be seeing you there.
