I’m rather glad that MLA is hiring bloggers to cover MLA because this year I already have about forty times the number of commitments as last year, so I’m not sure how much time I’ll spend typing. (I am obviously not going to be an official blogger as I didn’t really cherish the idea of applying for it and revealing my name, and since I already have wireless all taken care of, that wasn’t really an incentive.) This year, I will in fact have a cell phone with an unlimited data plan, so I will likely be twittering like crazy instead. Whether I choose to twitter as Ratcatcher or not…well, we’ll see.
For those twitterers going to MLA, make sure you follow mla2008. You can send mla2008 a direct message, and it will get redistributed to the group using GroupTweet.
Stuff at MLA I’m looking forward to (besides the Ovid party…):
- Bridging the Gap with Web 2.0: Connecting with Our Community and Ourselves
- The Role of Health Sciences Librarians in Applying Web 2.0 Technologies and Their Uses in Clinical and Public Health Practice and Instruction (the longest program title known to man)
- Forging Connections to Emerging Research: New Technologies
- Evidence Base: Web 2.0 for Professional and Clinical Productivity
- Not-So Dangerous Liaisons: Best Practices for Library Liaison Work
- So many other programs that I can’t possibly attend…
- Web 2.0 Tools in Medical and Nursing School Curriculum
- Third-year Medical Student Participation on a Daily News Service Editorial Board
- PubMed and Evidence-based Medicine Training for Medical Students: Finding a Better Way
- Bridging the Information Management Gaps in a Revised Medical School Curriculum
- etc, etc, etc
Really, there’s too much to link to right now.
