20 Reasons ...

I’m doing a bit of catch-up tonight and am thrilled about the opportunity to meet Kathryn Greenhill this weekend and also see Michelle McLean again before we all speak at the Victoria State Library (along with Lynette Lewis & Denise McLarty, aka Australia's L2 Divas) on Monday.

In browsing through my feeds tonight, I came across Kathryn’s post 20 reasons why learning emerging techologies is part of every librarian’s job. Kathyrn offers up a great list of reasons for library professionals to keep on top of emerging trends. Among my favorite is #18 –Can’t predict the future, so need to experiment.

Be sure to take a look at the full post, it’s well worth the read and while you’re add it, why not add Kathyrn’s blog Librarians Matter to your RSS feeds? Just following her blog, helps you achieve numbers 1, 4, 15, 16 & 20. :)

Hi Helene. I'm looking forward to meeting you tomorrow night. I had a tech run throught at the State Library yesterday and the auditorium is well designed - light and intimate...not daunting at all. It should be a great day, with lots to think about.

Hi Helen - just started with learning 2.0 the other day. These 29 reasons are further motivation - as strong as the MP3-Player I promised to myself after completing the program ;-)
