Yesterday, I attended Nelinet’s IT Conference, Social Networking: Plugging New England Libraries into Web 2.0, held at Bentley College. Overall, it was definitely worth attending. I had thought (and hoped) that some of the presentations might be more technical in nature, but that was not to be. Most of the presenters discussed (and evaluated) their implementations of social software in their libraries.
Chad Boeninger, from Ohio University, was one of the day’s presenters. Additionally, he blogged the conference over at Library Voice.
