UPDATE 11/30 – Here’s the URL for accessing the talk which start in an hour!
I’m excited to be the first in a great series of informal talks held by OPAL. It’ll be like an afternoon in Portland drinking coffee and talking. But we’ll be dry! Lifted from their site:
Friday, November 30, 2007 beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time, 1:00 Central, noon Mountain, 11:00 a.m. Pacific, and 7:00 p.m. GMT/UTC/Zulu:
A Casual Conversation with Aaron Schmidt
Aaron Schmidt is the Director of the North Plains Public Library in Oregon and a blogger at Walking Paper. The Casual Conversations series is designed to be up-close and personal from a respectable online distance. While there are many conferences (in-person, online, and in-world) where librarians can hear leaders in the field make formal presentations about interesting projects, there are few opportunities to hear these same leaders discuss informally what they currently are working on, their future plans and goals, the challenges and opportunities facing librarianship, their personal pet peeves, etc.
Watch for more information about these upcoming Casual Conversations:
