Yesterday Vicki Cormie and I led a discussion in Second Life (the virtual world) about our impressions of the LILAC (information literacy) conference held last week. For this we prepared a notecard (handout). "Waste not want not": I thought I could repurpose that material for the blog. I will make this into 3 entries.
In this first one I post web addresses of other blogs that covered LILAC, in the second I will post Vicki's material plus the address for the transcript of the Second Life event, and in the third provide my final round up.
There were a number of parallel sessions at LILAC, but if you look through all the blog entries you will find that, between them, they cover a good number of the sessions. I'm sure I haven't found all the entries, so please add comments to link to any other LILAC reports.
1. There was a dedicated LILAC 2008 conference blog maintained by one of the delegates at http://lilac2008.wordpress.com/
