Carnival of the Infosciences #21

January 23rd, 2006 by infomancy

This issue of the Carnival of the Infosciences was NOT written from the ALA Midwinter Conference. Instead it will feature submissions that came in from some others who find themselves not at this conference, as well as some links to the excellent blog coverage from those who were/are in San Antonio.

Library 2.0, a prominent feature in last weeks Carnival of the Infosciences #20 from TangognaT, received some additional attention this past week as others consider how these ideas apply in different settings. Filipino Librarian gives us “Library 2.0: A View from the Third World,” and I finally found the time to finish tackling my look at School Library 2.0 with “SL2.0: Examples of a Vision.”

In other news, there is apparently a conference of sorts going on somewhere? Alice from Alice in InfoLand writes about being there without being there in “ALA Midwinter 2006 — virtually there.”In addition to major awards for children’s and young adult literature, there have been some great updates from different divisions.

  • LITA (Library and Information Technology Association)
  • YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association)
  • PLA (Public Library Association)

Next week’s Carnival of the Infosciences #22 will be hosted by What I Learned Today. Submission directions are already posted.
