Presenters: Kelly Watson, Debra Kakuk, Ameet Doshi Broadcast Date: Friday, April 13, 2007 Love it or hate it, the Internet is often a librarian's best friend – assisting us in serving our patrons and many times helping us do our jobs better. However, as the World Wide Web continues to grow at an exponential rate (blogs and wikis and RSS feeds – oh my!), many of us feel overwhelmed. Have you ever wished that everything could be simpler? Do you sometimes long for a list of web sites that would get you through the most challenging of workdays? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then The Best From the Web is for you. Kelly Watson and a panel of experts have compiled a toolkit of the best the web has to offer library workers. Learn about web resources that will assist you in your everyday job, whether you work at a public desk or behind the scenes in tech services. Leave this session with your "best of the web" toolkit and make your job of providing the best information for your patrons easier. This teleconference is 90 minutes in length--Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
