No Dog Days of August: Three Webinar Updates Next Week
We have a lot of exciting news to share from the Pacific Northwest and beyond! Here’s the scoop for all you need to know about the PubMed redesign update, emergency preparedness, and the return of the RML Rendezvous.
Please note that this webinar will be shared with two other regions ranging from Hawaii to Missouri and is limited to 125 attendees as the maximum number of audio outlets available. We strongly encourage people to connect 15 minutes before the start time, and for attendees at institutions to use one connection and listen in via speakerphone. A recording of the session, along with questions and answers, will be posted when available for everyone to access.
Tuesday, August 11th at 1:00 pm Pacific, 2:00 Mountain and Noon Alaska time – Emergency Preparedness Step 3: Determine Your Core Services led by Kathy Murray in Alaska at https://webmeeting.nih.gov/pnremprep/
With the sobering news of the Louisville Public Library flash flood causing at least $5 million worth of damage in Kentucky this week, you can afford to invest your time learning more about emergency preparedness in our 10 Steps to Service Continuity series!
George Gottschalk, ARL Career Enhancement Fellow, will discuss wiki community building. In the first part of the presentation he will briefly cover wikis. The ‘Working Together Apart’ session last year (recording available) covered wikis in 2008, and this presentation is an extension of it, but is less concerned with the technology behind the wiki platform and more interested in the community aspect of building a wiki.
George will cover general information about wiki theory and give a concise overview of a couple of websites that discuss potential best practices for building a wiki community. He will also review the Outreach Connections wiki, a portal for health information and health education professionals doing outreach to native populations, to examine how a wiki has been designed for professional collaboration and discuss important lessons learned about building a wiki community.
We look forward to seeing you at one, some, or all of the presentations next week!
