your photos online." This one-hour session walks you through what you
can do with the service and will give you plenty of ideas on how you can
use Flickr to promote your library. This session also will use Flickr to
introduce you to two of the hottest topics in librarianship today:
social software and folksonomies.

What is a Webcast?
This is an expanded version of our popular audio conferences. You will
need a computer and the ability to get on the internet... and a
telephone. That is it. No special hardware; no special software. You
will be given an address on the Web at which you will sign in with a
password that will be given to you in your registration confirmation.
You will be able to see the presenter's desktop and see what he or she
is doing as you watch. Like all audio conferences, there is no limit on
the number of people that might be around the phone at each location.
The limitation will be in how many people can comfortably see the
computer. If you have a data projector, there is probably no limit.
