Blogging. RSS. Facebook. Twitter. FourSquare. What do they have to do with law libraries? Meg Kribble will speak about these social media (aka web 2.0) tools and how law libraries are using them. What’s useful? What’s not? How do you find out, get your feet wet, and get your library out there? And how can social media benefit you? Everybody’s library and experiences are different, but Meg will provide tricks and tips for both getting started and moving forward with social media.

GPLLA Program: Finding the Knowledge Lost in Information

Please join your colleagues on Wed., April 27th for the program, Finding the knowledge lost in information: How to provide an as-it-happens update service for major legislative and administrative initiatives.

In the autumn of 2008 the financial sky began to fall and legislators began to Act. A group of Pepper Hamilton librarians created a system for tracking, spot-analyzing and delivering news of these developments as they occurred to an eager audience. They have since used this model several times – most recently on the Dodd-Frank bill.  Hear how to find the knowledge that is lost in information – and deliver it to patrons who need that knowledge – now!

The program will be presented by Leslie Proffitt, Research Services Librarian, and Robyn Beyer, Library Director, from Pepper Hamilton.  The event will take place in the Reed Smith cafe from 5:30-7:00PM, with the actual program beginning at 5:30 and running approximately 1 hour.  There will be time at the end of the program for Q & A.

R.S.V.P. to Kristen Rook (krook@morganlewis.com) by Friday, April 22, 2011.

For directions to the meeting place, please contact Scott DeMaris at fdemaris@reedsmith.com or 215-851-1413.
