Past Life Memories

In my previous life, I worked as an archivist, librarian and part-time history instructor. Jobs that I truly enjoyed. One of the things that made my job so enjoyable was the people I met both online and in real life. People have this image of librarians as being these crazy cat ladies (we do have our fair share of cat lovers) or doddy old men but in reality, librarians are some of the most creative and fashionable (yeah, I said it) people you’d ever want to meet.

One of those creative types that I’m proud to call my friend is Michael Porter. A few months back, he and another creative librarian, David Lee King, sent out a call to their fellow librarians to contribute multimedia to their Library 101 video. The final project will include the video and a website with links and resources to keep librarians abreast of the changes in technology and librarianship.

Well, after three months of hard work (I saw some of the prelim work and, OMG, these guys rawk), Michael announced on twitter that the Library 101 video will debut at the “Connecting Through ‘Lights, Cameras & Action'” session at the Internet Librarian Conference in Monterey, California. When it rolls out, I will definitely let everyone know. In the meantime, take a look at one of the guys’ other collaborations.
If you’d like to see the Library 101 pictures on flickr, simply click my picture above. In the meantime, here are some other relevant links to the Library 101 project:
