November 20th Meeting: "Web 2.0 Tools for Reference" with Steve Garwood

The next meeting of the CJRLC Technology Group will take place on Tuesday, November 20, 2007 at the Monmouth County Library Marlboro branch. The meeting will run from 3:00 to 4:30 PM. This meeting is also a crossover meeting with the NJLA Reference Section. We hope that you will join us!

Our meeting will feature a program on Web 2.0 Tools for Reference. Steve Garwood of Rutgers University School of Communication, Information and Library Studies (SCILS) will present this informative workshop. Steve will focus on several useful Web 2.0 tools that can be used to facilitate reference work in different types of libraries. These include instant messaging, blogs, RSS, wikis, social bookmarking, social networking and screencasting. Steve is noted as one of New Jersey's most knowledgeable library technology gurus and his presentations are always as entertaining as they are enlightening.

New members are welcome! CJRLC Technology Group meetings are free and open to all attendees. This is the perfect opportunity to meet and network with other like-minded librarians from around the region. Please bring your new tech ideas, discoveries and tips to share with other group members!

Directions to MCL Marlboro branch can be found here. Hope to see you at the meeting on November 20th!
