Guest host Kate is back, filling in for Maurice while he is down in Virginia presenting at the Virginia Library Directors’ meeting (but he and usual suspect Paul Signorelli did find time to call in and say hello).
Our conversation this episode is (mostly) with usual suspect Jill Hurst-Wahl and her experiences at the R Squared Conference, a very different kind of library conference, earlier this month in Telluride, Colorado. (Also on the call is usual suspect Marianne Lenox!)
Some links discussed during the show:
- Jill’s blog posts highlighting the conference: http://hurstassociates.blogspot.com/search/label/RSQ12
- Blog post from Syracuse iSchool student Topher Lawton on his experiences: http://infospace.ischool.syr.edu/2012/09/19/r-squared-game-changer/
- Topher also shared his experiences on his personal blog: http://hie-anon.blogspot.com/2012/09/so-what-hell-jump.html
- What other library conference can you attend where you can get up close and personal with a snake? (Thanks to Crystal Schimpf for the photo!)
