Tomorrow: San Jose State online colloquium

San Jose State University's School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) regularly offers online colloquia that highlight issues and strategies of interest to librarians, archivists, and records managers. Tomorrow's presentation, "Social Enterprises: A Changing Information Landscape," will be given by Don Burke of the U.S. Department of Energy. Burke will focus on how new collaborative tools and the work norms they foster will "finally break the paradigm of paper as the fundamental container of information." He will also discuss "some of the opportunities and challenges those changes have on traditional ideas of information management, records management, learning, and communication."

Mr. Burke's presentation will begin at 5:00PM Pacific Time (8:00PM Eastern Time). There is no charge to take part in this colloquium, and you don't have to register in advance. All you need to do is go to this Web page shortly before the colloquium starts, scroll down, and click on the "Live URL" for Mr. Burke's presentation. (N.B.: SLIS uses Blackboard Collaborate, which will install some Java files onto your computer. You may want to read the Student Guide to Using Collaborate before you participate in this colloquium.)
