DALNET Systems Librarian Cathy Wolford will be speaking at Internet Librarian 2011 as part of the conference’s popular Cybertours. The theme of the 15th annual conference is “Revolutionizing the Net with Content, Connections & Conversations.” This year’s conference takes place October 17th – 19th.
Cathy’s discussion is titled “Using YouTube Playlists for Collection Development.” The description is as follows: “Delivering library services in new formats is becoming the norm. This cybertour looks at using YouTube, the world’s largest and best-known online video brand, which has a convenient way to organize user-created videos into collections. Learn how to create and customize your YouTube channel and playlists, excel at video selection analysis, and understand the various types of YouTube accounts and their benefits. Filled with lots of tips on how to integrate YouTube playlists into other library while dealing with the use of third-party content.”
Cathy has presented or had poster sessions at many conferences including national ones like Computers in Libraries and Special Libraries Association, as well as local ones like the Michigan Library Association annual conference and Academic Libraries. This is a great way get DALNET’s name recognized on a local, regional and national level.
