Chrystie R. Hill led off on this session with some great examples and facts about Librarians and Libraries in networked communities. “Big Ups” to Michael Porter who followed with a smart and funny presentation that woke me up before my 3rd cup of coffee, something that’s pretty hard to do. :) He showed some example […]
