Special Libraries "Gadgets and Gizmos" Session at CLA 2006 Conference in Ottawa

The next Canadian Library Association (CLA) conference will be held in June 2006 in Ottawa and organizers are looking for programming suggestions.

According to the listserv of CASLIS, the CLA's special libraries division (Canadian Association of Special Libraries and Information Services) , there will be a 60-minute panel session tentatively entitled "Gadgets and Gizmos", describing how special librarians use technology to improve their workplace.

This includes wireless computing, BlackBerries, iPods, docking stations, software such as link checkers and customizable toolbars, bookmark organizers or sharers like Furl, results visualizers like Kart00, advanced Adobe applications, screen grabbers like SnagIt, file sharers like eSnips, etc.

People willing to talk about any of their favourite work-related technotoys for 10-15 minutes in a panel session are invited to get in contact with Maggie Weaver or Ingrid Moisil.
