I'm on the road... upcoming presentations and talks

Since my calendar thingie is not working so well, here is what I have on my schedule for upcoming talks/presentations:

Sept. 19, Digital Initiatives w/ Tim Daniels, GPLS Director's Meeting,
Current and emerging trends in library technology -- is my part

Oct. 22 Semantic web. vs. Social Media, Master of Internet Technology Program, Gwinnett Campus: What REALLY is the semantic web and is it at odds with social media and user generated content? Can folksonomies exist alongside dublincore metadata?

Oct. 23 Facebook, privacy, and your digital identity, UGA Web Editors Group (Dweebs) Have you wondered what digital identity you are leaving behind? What about privacy? If you are not actively cultivating your online identity, is someone else creating one for you? Even if you are not a Facebook user, chances are that you know someone who is -- someone who could be sharing information about you.

We'll talk about the uses of Facebook by individuals and organizations, as well as its role in developing identity and how to control what is shared. We'll talk about social media etiquette and what it means in this world where we are all "friends".

Nov. 16 Learning about cataloging: free online tools to help your learn about cataloging from the basics to more advanced, USG Cataloging Committee (ONLINE)
Do you know there are FREE cataloging tools and training on the web? While some are interactive and some are not, there are a variety of tools and resources out there to help you learn about cataloging, metadata, and databases. Explore some of the resources found on the web ... you might even find some time saving resources!


yeah, I know, I am a busy girl...
