I’m settling nicely into Atlanta, and enjoying all the exciting work in my new job as the Web Services Librarian at GSU. We’re hard at work on a new website, so keep your eyes open for the groovy new features we’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks.
In the mean time, here are some speaking gigs I’ve got lined up for this month:
- Wednesday Webinars – The Social Library (Wednesday, July 21, 2010, 10:00am). This is a free webinar series offered by the Georgia Public Library Service, so feel free to sign up. I’ll be talking about some of the latest trends in social computing and how you can leverage those trends in libraries.
- Atlanta Emerging Librarians – Say What You Mean: Professional Communication Skills for Librarians (Saturday, July 24th, 2010, 3:00-5:00pm, Dunwoody Library, Dunwoody, GA). I’ll be doing an overview of interpersonal communication skills as they apply to librarians, including: basic communication skills, direct vs. indirect communication, conflict management, and professional relationship maintenance.
I’m really looking forward to doing both presentations, and to taking part in the post-talk dialogue with librarians (always my favorite part!). So sign up, show up, and let’s have a conversation!
