Presentation slides from Depository Library Council

I had a great time at last week’s Fall 2008 Depository Library Council in Washington, D.C. (well actually Arlington, VA). Rebecca Blakeley and I had a good time live blogging DLC with a nice little free Web app called CoverItLive. It’s awesome the GPO posted the proceedings and slides on fdlp.gov! I also started a space to upload presentation slides on slideshare, and have so far gotten 8 presenters to post their slides there. Slideshare is a public repository of presentations, so having everyone’s slides up there would be a good way for the public to find them. DLC presentations on slideshare have been viewed from 35 to 227 times already, so if you were a presenter, I hope you’ll consider uploading your slides to the dlcfall08 event.

That is all.

(I admit, I coopted that from John Hodgman, PC of those PC/Mac ads and guest blogger on boingboing. That’s how John ended his posts, and I can only *hope* to be 1/100th as funny as him)



Live blogging DLC

Hi all. I just landed in Washington D.C. and gearing up for Depository Library Council meeting for the next three days. I’m trying out this new tool called CoverItLive that will allow me to live blog the conference (if you want to help, let me know and I’ll add you as a panelist!!). Please check back here as the window below will *hopefully* be in real time. This also depends on wireless access. Check out the meeting agenda and leave me a comment if there’s anything from which you really want a report. Wish me luck!
