Tuesday, March 16th, 2010, Columbia University

The third in an annual series of international conferences at Columbia University focuses on the multiplicity of diverse developments and directions in the application of Web 2.0, Social Networking, & Libraries. How public and academic libraries are using Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and many other social networking tools to foster communication and promote library service among librarians, between the library and the public, and among library users with each other is what the conference is all about.

Such leaders in social networking applications as Margaret Smith, Physical Sciences Librarian at New York University; Janie Hermann, Program Coordinator at Princeton Public Library; Damon Jaggers, Associate University Librarian for Collections & Services, Columbia University Libraries & Information Services; and Yakov Shrayberg, Director General of the Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology and President of ILIAC, will share how Web 2.0 and social networking are used to successfully promote and introduce innovative and cutting edge library services as well as explore national trends and applications in the U.S. and Russia.
