I’ve been up since 1:30 AM and I don’t know why — except that Holiday Inn beds aren’t as good as Marriott beds. So the next time your surgeon says something about staying in a Holiday Inn Express, get up and walk away.
Tomorrow, I’ll be speaking at the Illinois School Library Media Association conference and I don’t want to just roll off a standard keynote address. Although I often speak at school library media conferences, I usually do not speak specifically to management, functions, and vision for libraries. I’m probably not qualified. Usually I stick to the “Here’s how information is changing…” line. But I may do it differently tomorrow.
I have two questions for the librarian readers out there:
- I remember, years ago, that libraries were compared to the hub of a wheel, and the wheel was the school. Actually, an areal view of the junior high school I attended would have looked just like that. Is this as visual that is still used to talk about school library media centers?
- In one short paragraph, what does Web 2.0 mean to the school library?
Your comments will be appreciated, and perhaps even included in the online handouts…
