On this T is for Training, Stephanie Zimmerman started us off with a conversation on ILEAD USA: Innovative Librarians Explore, Apply and Discover, which she participated in. iLEAD USA is being used in 10 U.S. states. The videos from the keynotes and invited speakers from this event are at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLX5frlby3mLroZdaOO4CFJVV6P-N6XlM2. Information on the iLEAD Pennsylvania teams is at https://ileadusapennsylvania.wordpress.com/. Stephanie noted that there was a heavy use of Twitter during the live event. The iLEAD Twitter name is @ILEAD_USA and they used the hashtag of #ileadusa.
Stephanie’s iLEAD presentation and handouts are at:
Stephanie mentioned this book Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, which Eli Neiburger mentioned in his presentation. The Project Gutenberg version is at http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/201.
The near-final topic was on how to make conference more appropriate for long-term participants. (Dear Conference Organizers, yes, this is an issue. How can we help?)
In a tangent, the crew talked about how public libraries are chartered in New York and Maryland. For NYS info, go to http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/libs/pltypes.htm.
