Internet Librarian 2012

I am extremely honored to be part of the 2012 Internet Librarian Conference this year!  I will be part of two events, which you can read about below.  I have also shared my slides as well.

(There are so many really awesome things happening at this conference this year and you can check that out here.  I’ll be posting my conference itinerary soon and blogging from the event)

SUNDAY OCTOBER 21st
W12 – Teen Library Users: Engaging the Next Generation 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM Stephen Abram, VP, Strategic Partnerships and Markets, Gale Cengage Learning Susan Considine, Executive Director, The Fayetteville Free Library Brian Pichman, Director of Informational Technology, Digital Innovation Department, Mokena Community Public Library District & Evolve Project Justin Hoenke, Teen Librarian, Portland Public Library (Maine) Patrick “PC” Sweeney, Branch Manager, San Mateo County Library Terri Fredericka, Executive Director, InfOhioThere are a ton of great ideas out there using new technologies and great content to attract and retain teen users in the library. This workshop demonstrates how guitars, video, 3D printing, laser tag, iPhone apps, and more can be tied to programs and library use to engage teens and attract them to the library in any community. And, just as important is how to tie this to their needs for homework help, social needs, and reading. The team of presenters is comprised of on-the-ground, in-the-field teen librarians.

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24
E303 – Trends in Teen Users and Technology: A Dynamic Panel 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM Moderator: Stephen Abram, VP, Strategic Partnerships and Markets, Gale Cengage Learning Susan Considine, Executive Director, The Fayetteville Free Library Brian Pichman, Director of Informational Technology, Digital Innovation Department, Mokena Community Public Library District & Evolve Project Justin Hoenke, Teen Librarian, Portland Public Library (Maine)A panel of teen librarians is dynamically interviewed about their ideas and innovations in working with and successfully attracting teen users to the public library. Come hear their great experiments, pilots, and programs using things as basic as guitars, simple gaming nights, or as advanced as laser tag, mobile apps, and more. No talking heads and lots of opportunity for audience involvement.
