CALL 2008 Conference - Practical Applications of Web 2.0

The educational portion of this year's annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (May 25-28, 2008 in Saskatoon) was kicked off last Monday by Darlene Fichter, Coordinator of the Data Library Services at the University of Saskatchewan.

Her presentation was about Practical Applications of Web 2.0 Technology (she made her presentation available online on Slideshare).

Her message can be boiled down to a few principles:
  • learn from others in the profession who are using blogs, wikis, social bookmarking tools
  • mix it up a little - here, she pointed to examples such a LegalPubs that cut and paste RSS feeds from different sources. This can allow for targeting information to specific practice groups in a law firm or professors in academia
  • share what you know via blogging, podcasting or screencasting about what the library does best
  • get involved in librarian online social networks
  • put it in your work schedule to learn and play
