Internet Librarian International 2005 & the WIKI & TAGS

On 10 and 11 october 2005 the 7th annual "Internet Librarian International" was held. Besides the interesting programme they also had a (unofficial) conference wiki to keep up with communications etc. Here's the programme: Conference At-a-Glance [PDF] PreConference Workshops - Sunday, October 9 General Confererence - Day One: Monday, October 10 • Opening Keynote: Digitising Library Collections • Track A: Blogs, Wikis, and Collaboration Tools • Track B (morning): E-Learning and Training • Track B (afternoon): Information Organisation and Discovery • Track C: Global Best Practices General Confererence - Day Two: Tuesday, October 11 • Keynote: Relevance and the Future of Search • Track A (morning): Digital Libraries and Resources • Track A (afternoon): Exploring Web Research Skills and Resources • Track B (morning): Innovative Information Environments • Track B (afternoon): Technology for Libraries Wiki's, Blogs, collaboration tools, digital libraries etc. All the items that are hot at the moment! A new subject i recently discovered as very promising is the TAG. Tagging is a new way of categorising information on the web. Connect a special TAG (like this: click here )to your webpages, blogs anything and even more special searchengines cab search for "all" information with the same tags. Technorati is one of them. See for yourself if you search for the tag for the ILI2005. You will find webinfo from blogs that mention the ILI2005. Technorati lists the most favourite tags and puts them on their website. Weird! I will scan the presentations later and report back.
