September 16, 2004
The newly-opened Strongsville Public Library, Cuyahoga County Library,
where technology starts from below the ground! In addition to a state-of-the-
art geothermal system, the new 35,000 sq. ft library integrates many aspects
of technology. Customers can use Web tablets to log on to the Internet with
wireless access available anywhere in the building.
RUTH WOLFISH, 2004-05 President-Elect of the New Jersey SLA Chapter,
presents a two-for-one evening on September 16th. First, as a representative
of IEEE ExploreT, she'll demonstrate a new trend in information access,
from one of the industry's most respected research content providers.
"Anything that technology touches" is how Ruth describes what you'll find
in IEEE.and now, you can find abstracts on the web and yet provide solid
research leads. If you support research in wide-ranging disciplines from
management science to biomedical research.professional communications
to religion, you'll learn new tips and techniques. An engaging speaker (most
definitely not a `talking head') Ruth charges you to "think what parts of your
life technology touches..even Spielberg did the AI movie!" Learn to mine
the proprietary data on the open web, in a new way, from a respected
vendor. Even if you don't have direct access, you'll be able to quickly
identify the primary resources that you can get for your customers. Expand
your world, while you expand your resource options.
Ruth also will speak from her own SLA chapter experiences. You'll learn
what's new from a chapter celebrating its 65th anniversary.and hear about
her most unusual career path, something that has or may touch all of us.
Come and hear how she views today's MLS and how she proves it's not
limited to traditional librarianship.
She'll name places, situations.like the interview where the job requirement
was 5 years' experience (which she did not have), and how she got the job.
Or, the question she asks of every boss she's ever had. We all should try it.
If you want to see energy and creativity in action, with candid and real
conversation, join us on September 16th for a very different kickoff meeting
to a new year-content, plus professional growth tips from the field, not the
textbook. Join us!.
Come view technology at work at the Strongsville library. SLA Members
will be given a tour of the facility during the dinner hour.
