They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. But around the industry, the end of March won't be so quiet! Two of our sector's biggest conferences -- Computers in Libraries (CIL) 2011 Conference and the AIIM International Conference and Expo @ info360 -- will be shaking down.

Our CTO, Phil Green, will be hitting the road with one of our customers -- Corrina Mason, MISt, Information Specialist at HRPA -- to present at both. They'll be tackling two hot-button topics for information professionals in 2011 -- Social Knowledge Networks and social libraries.

Below are the details of their presentations. If you're planning on going to CIL or info360, be sure to mark your schedule to check them out! If you haven't registered for CIL or info360, you can still do so on the shows' websites.

Because libraries operate at the intersection of content consumers and content producers, they are in an ideal position to lead effective social knowledge management practices. With all of the attention given to social technologies, most information professionals and knowledge workers understand what constitutes a social library.

Now more than ever, libraries are recognizing the benefit of content-centric socialization.
