Welcome to the SLT blog!

You've likely found your way here from the Scholarship and Libraries in Transition symposium. University of Michigan University Library staff have set up this blog to support and extend the discussion begun at the symposium. We anticipate that the event will generate lots of great ideas, and feel that a blog would be a great place to capture these conversations that will continue beyond the timeframe and outside the auditorium.

We welcome your participation in this discussion. Several people will be posting during and after the symposium, so please check in with us for the latest udpates.

This is a great time to think about the new Orphan Works report from the Copyright Office and to get involved with this process.

I connected to the live webcast to hear Tim O'Reilly. Has the keynote address been moved to another time?

Yes, his plane was delayed so it will be later in the afternoon. Not sure what time though?

The sign in the lobby said 11:10am.

My hat is off to whoever is in charge of the webcast. Screen size is more than ample. Sound is crystal clear. Blended transitions from camera to camera are a nice touch. Nice job.

This is a wonderful gathering of excellent voices in librarianship and infosciences. Great job to conference planners and volunteers for putting together a great program. The wireless is most appreciated!

My hat's off to all speakers for being so patient with the sound/technical issues. The feedback is distracting and at times painful; glad our esteemed presenters can be so patient and continue forward! :)

Hi, I see there is no anonymous feedback form in our packets. Where may we go to submit feedback about this symposium? Thank you, Jennifer Graham, Buffalo, NY

Where will the webcast be archived for later access? Will speaker slides be made available too? I have to miss Cliff Lynch's presentation and would like to see that later. Also, on the webcast -- while the quality is great -- one only gets quick glimpses of the slides, which makes it tougher to follow with a couple of the presenters. Being able to review the slides would be super. Thanks! -M.

A general question: Will Powerpoint/text of presentations be made available via this blog (or other) at some point?

Posted by: at March 11, 2006 09:13 AM

We will be posting the presentation slides on the symposium web site as speakers send them to us. The webcast will also be posted later this week.

The symposium web site is:
