I know this seems a tad early but I have to go into hospital on Monday and will be out of circulation until early December (and might not make the meeting) so please accept this notice as your formal invitation for the 9th December 2009 at 1230 at HBJ Gateley Wareing on Edmund Street (location and directions attached)
Steve Wood from Birmingham Library will be our guest speaker
Please let Caroline Moseley whether or not you intend to be there so that we can make the necessary arrangements for catering, etc.
Additionally, those of you who are CILIP members may have seen the latest edition of Open Access which had significant coverage of Web 2.0 including details of CILIP workshops being run in Birmingham during December at the NTI by Phil Bradley
Web 2.0 Workshops
Internet guru Phil Bradley is running two half-day Web 2.0 Workshops at the New Technology Institute in Birmingham on 17 December. Places are still available and you can download the course programme and booking form at: http://bit.ly/sfgHH
We had begun to develop an ALLICE training event for next Spring on this topic (possibly as a joint venture with BIALL) and would have sounded members out on their interest in this later in the year.
Given these imminent CILIP workshops, though, it might be best to 'test the water' now.
Is anyone planning to attend the CILIP Web 2.0 workshop in December?
If not, could you say if you'd be interested in a ALLICE/BIALL workshop on this topic next Spring?
Please send your replies to a committee member (Caroline Mosley, Caroline Covington or Diane Harris)
