Sara Seely and Jill Fairlee Kobayashi will present on educational blogging, and how blogs are being used in school libraries and K-12 classrooms. This is an abbreviated version of the presentation Jill and Sara gave at the Washington Library Media Association annual meeting a few weeks ago.

Andrew Szydlowski will teach us about RSS (Really Simple Syndication). RSS is alternative means of presenting and accessing information on the Internet using XML. Instead of the user browsing websites for information of interest, the information is sent directly to the user via RSS.

This is a recording of the 2007 annual Thomson ISI Samuel Lazerow Lecture, which was held at the Henry Art Gallery.

The UW Information School was pleased to have Brewster Kahle, the “internet librarian,” speak about the past, present and future of digital librarianship during his lecture, “Universal Access to All Human Knowledge.” He discussed the roles, rights, and responsibilities of our libraries and archives in providing public access to digital collections of human knowledge. He spoke of a near future where the promise of the digital age—to make all of human knowledge available to students and scholars all over the world ”is a reality.
