Blogging the World of Work
9:15-9:45am, Catherwood Library Computer Training, 233A Ives Hall

Chris Miller, Coordinator of Reference, Instruction, and Outreach. Staying up to date with the latest news and information about the ILR field can be a time consuming process. Why waste time visiting all the different sites you use when you can let those sites tell you when they have new information? This session will discuss the use of new technologies that allow you to subscribe to web sites, blogs, and other sources of information and visit only one source to be informed and review the most current news. Several examples of excellent ILR resources will be included, as well as an introduction to the Catherwood Library blog.
