In the second of our vodcasts, here’s Mark Beatty (current Vice-President and President-Elect of LITA) talking about the LITA Town Meeting and what you can do to help guide LITA this year. Again, apologies for the low audio quality… Here’s Mark!
I managed to corner both current LITA president Bonnie Postlewaite and Vice-President and President-Elect Mark Beatty at ALA Midwinter 2007 and get some brief video of them. We at LITABlog realize that not everyone attends conferences, and so might not recognize Bonnie or Mark. Hopefully these next couple of videos will put a face with the names…I apologize for the low audio, at Annual we’ll have a slightly better sound rig. First up: Bonnie Postlewaite, LITA President
In part four, we hear from Karen Schneider about her thoughts on the near-future of library technology. If you’re enjoying these podcasts, leave us a comment and let us know…we’d love to hear this is a valuable thing for our members. Plus, it will help us justify expanding our podcasting reach for Annual this summer. Thanks again to Maurice York, whose work allowed us to provide these to the LITA members.
With enormous thanks to Maurice York, the first of many LITA Podcasts! There are seven segments in all for about an hour and forty-five minutes of trending goodness. For the sake of immediacy, this is pretty much the raw audio–not much editing or finessing. A more refined audio experience will be posted as we go. If you enjoy these, be on the lookout for more podcasts from the 2007 ALA Midwinter meeting from LITA. We’ll be podcasting more than just the Top Tech Trends in the upcoming days, including some video from the LITA officers, and reactions to the LITA Town Meeting. If you’ve never subscribed to a podcast before and would like some tips on how to subscribe or applications to use, post a comment to this post and I’ll go more into depth….just trying to get this up quickly for now!
