I am delighted to be able to agree to run a morning session at the May 6, 2011 meeting of the Eastern Canada Chapter of the Special Libraries Association. The session consists of two parts:
- Part 1 – 90 minutes – Use of social media in a professional context: why, when, and how to help users navigate (training and marketing).
- Part 2 – 60 minutes – Major tools to become an effective social media librarian/professional
As part of my research to prepare the content for these two sessions I thought I would ask you. What do you think I should talk about that would be relevant to this elite group of Information Management professionals? Any favorite resources or stories of how Social Media makes the Library Profession more effective? Any other advice?
Thanks in advance

Wendy and I had a wonderful time speaking with the 50 librarians today. I have attached a PDF version of the completed presentation. Thanks to the SLA for having us and once again thanks to everyone that helped during the research phase.
