Productive posters

Went to some interesting poster sessions this morning and learned about a few things I want to investigate further.  Assignment Research Calculator is OSS from U. of Minnesota that helps students manage the research and writing process.  Librians at CSU Fresno tweaked it and integrated some IL modules into it.  Want to check this out.

Another poster introduced me to yet more OSS , this time Libstats for tracking reference transactions and Libraryh3lp, which is like Meebo, but specifically designed for libraries.

My panel choices today have not been the best ones, so far.  Went to one on “statistical literacy”, but it was too rudimentary to be of much use. The next was on getting buy-in from faculty for IL programs.  Some good ideas, but mostly stuff I’d heard of already.
