WEEK OF FEBRUARY 19th
________________________

Begins Monday, Feb 19th, 6-week On-line Course
Canadian Government Documents and Information on the Web
with Jeff Moon

Governments around the world have embraced the Web as a major
publication tool for government documents, laws, statistics, and
citizen-based information. Web-based government information is a great
enhancement to a library collection -- if you know how to find and use
these resources.

Designed for general librarians and professionals without an extensive
background searching for government information, this course will
introduce you to key Canadian government information sources on the
Internet. The program is focused primarily on Canadian Federal
publications and related information. We'll cover a new topic in each
week of this six-week program and provide exercises to help you practice
using these resources effectively.

Tuesday, Feb. 20th, 1-2pm ET (11am-12pm, PT)
Part of the TECH TUESDAYS: TALKING WITH TECHIES Series
Teaching Web Searching and Google
with Greg Notess - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

While Google dominates the search world, few know all of its search
capabilities. Other search engines have much to offer as well. How can
construct lesson plans and instructional goals when so much of it can
change from one day to the next? This talk covers unique instructional
issues with search engines and solutions. It looks at advantages,
disadvantages, and techniques for hands-on training, demonstration
sessions, and on-line screencasts for use in teaching others to search
more effectively amidst the wealth of information on the Web.

Wednesday, Feb. 21st, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
Part of the THE NEXT GENERATION CATALOGUE A SERIES FOR THE 21ST
CENTURY, no.1
Social Discovery Systems
with Beth Jefferson - 1 hour WEB CONFERENCE

Our patrons are increasingly turning to the Web for rich, interactive,
community-based experiences, that are often centered on the information
and cultural products which are at the heart of our collections: books,
current events, movies, and music.

Many of our patrons spend a large portion of their leisure time
interacting with each other on-line: rating, reviewing, discussing,
tagging, and exploring new possibilities for reading, listening, and
viewing. For many, it is the equivalent of what hanging out in a library
and browsing the shelves and return carts once was.

How can we combine libraries' traditional strengths with emerging
social software trends to advance the interests and mission of libraries
in a wired world? Beth will explore options for developing the social
engagement of our communities from the local to the national level.

Libraries are uniquely positioned to bring social search and discovery
systems to mainstream audiences, and libraries could, if they came
together, have a huge impact in the next phase of the Web.

Thursday, Feb. 22nd, 3-4pm ET (12-1pm, PT)
BQ Wit and Wisdom: Insights for Info Pros
with  Barbara Quint - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Prompted by the book edited a few years ago by Marylaine Block, The
Quintessential Searcher: The Wit & Wisdom of Barbara Quint, this session
features a fun and revealing interview with one of the information
industry's icons -- Barbara Quint. Her wit and wisdom along with her
insights and leading edge ideas are front and center during this
interesting and illuminating talk.


Friday, Feb. 23rd, 2-3pm ET (11am-12pm, PT)
 Ship to Shore: Looking at Immigration Records
with  Judith Argent    - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

Demystify Canadian and US Immigration records! Assist your researchers
to locate their immigrant ancestors quickly using easily available
sources.

This session will assist participants to understand why these records
are so important to genealogy research, where the records are, and how
to access them. Sources of genealogy information in the official records
of the nineteenth and twentieth century immigration to Canada and the US
will be explored. Passenger and immigration lists are only part of the
story! The speaker, Judith Argent, draws on her many years of
researching family history and library reference work to present this
seminar.
