building community

How to better foster community and participation among Radical Reference participants.

this book is overdue video

The book's author would love us to make a short video in which we talked about librarians in the digital age from our perspective. Are there other librarians that we know of who are leaping the walls of the library to find and serve patrons? Why are librarians indispensable (or maybe you don't think they are)? She'd really be happy with anything -- what she'd love is our voices on what librarians can offer in the age of Google.

Collecting agenda items

Hey Jenna,

I'm compiling a list of these items as they're posted in comments -- want to make a phone date for sometime next week to double-check that I've got everything that's come your way, and that we've covered our bases between here & the facebook event page & whatever may come through the listserv(s)?
