Keeping Current: FEDLINK Expos

[ratings]
 

The opportunities that Federal librarians have to network at and attend conferences have been curtailed of late. What remains for us are the FEDLINK Expos that are completely free, open meetings with a webcast component so the community can collaborate.

When are they held? Spring and Fall every year

Where are they held?  Library of Congress and online via iCohere

(subscribe to the FEDLIB list for details about the next Expo)

 At prior year events, I learned these things.

  • The Library of Congress is making a concerted effort to aggregate and publish information about Federal libraries. This is a no-brainer because “If we don’t do it, who else will? “.
  • Other Federal libraries, such as the Marshall Center Research Library in Garmisch, Germany are using WorldShare, a hosted solution for libraries. Staff in the library catalog items in many different languages.
  • Federal librarians are working to formulate Open Access solutions in multiple Federal agencies including DTIC which is acting on behalf of the Department of Defense.

 Who knows what you’ll learn and who you’ll meet at an Expo?
