Blogging from the Backroom
A CIG Occasional Seminar
CILIP HQ, Ridgmount Street, London WC1E 7AE
Friday 8 June 2007
An occasional seminar organised by the CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group (CIG), this afternoon of presentations on blogging is aimed at those working in traditional 'backroom' professions - such as cataloguing, indexing, acquisitions, and knowledge management.
Topics covered include blogging the catalogue and why cat & class skills translate easily into tagging and basic site navigation; raising your profile through blogging; blogging for managers (based on a case study of health managers); and how the National Library for Health and the Home Office are using blogs, feeds and related technologies.
The focus of the afternoon is sharing ideas for incorporating blogging into your working life and it is suitable for experienced bloggers and non-bloggers alike.
Speakers include: Caroline De Brun (NLH), Helen Nicol (NHS Connecting for Health), Rachel Robbins and Karen George (Home Office), Christine Goodair (St George's Medical School, University of London) and Anne Welsh (DrugScope).
Each participant will receive a CD-Rom of presentations and 'how-to' demos.
