Take the SNSTF survey

…Even if you took it last time! From MLA-Focus:

SNSTF Survey: We Want to Help MLA Members Connect! The Task Force on Social Networking Software is charged with investigating issues involved in implementing blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, and social networking tools for MLA and its units. Last year’s survey helped us understand your needs and led to the creation of the “Web 2.0 101: Introduction to Second Generation Web Tools” course.

Whether or not you took our previous task force survey, it is important that we hear from you in this survey. Because these technologies evolve so rapidly, we know that opinions are also rapidly changing. We want to see what you think now.

Please take a few minutes before July 31 to fill out the online survey. Your data will affect the task force’s recommendations on MLA members’ social networking needs. Thank you in advance for your participation!

Correction to Chronicle column

Correction: In the Member & Library News column of Volume 26, Number 2, Summer 2008 of the Chronicle, it was indicated that P.J. Grier is the Director of the Lewis B. Flinn Library. He is not; he is Library Director for the Delaware Academy of Medicine.

A version of this item appeared in the summer issue of the Chronicle.
If you attended the Annual Conference this year, please feel free to share your photos online in the MLA 2008 Group on Flickr. The group name is “MLA 2008.”
If you were unable to attend, there are various URLs from which you can access the posters, which are available as PowerPoint slides or in Portable Document Format at this site or at this one.  If you prefer, you can also access the posters by session.
Presentation slides from plenaries and other sessions are online here and here. A few more presentations are linked from my del.icio.us account.
Lastly, here is one-stop shopping for the blogs that were maintained throughout the conference by the official MLA’08 conference bloggers. Read all about the conference through participants’ eyes.
