Conference posters: a lost resource?

leave a comment »

A great initiative by the famous Faculty of 1000…

The early scientific information presented in conference posters is universally agreed to be an important resource but, unfortunately, it is almost always completely lost once a conference is over.

As a result, posters are only viewed by a handful of people before they disappear, either forever or until the research is later published as a paper. Some important work may never get published, particularly if it focuses on negative results or case studies. The system of removing posters from view after a conference is over represents a vast loss to the scientific community of unique and potentially valuable information.

The open access F1000 Posters will provide a permanent, structured environment for the deposition of posters as well as a trustworthy venue for ongoing discussion and development of the information being presented.

Good luck to this great idea!

European Librarians Theatre at Online Information 2010 to focus on topical issues facing librarians

leave a comment »

Online Information, the largest UK event dedicated to the information industry, will host The European Librarians Theatre at this year’s exhibition.

The theatre will feature panel discussions focussing on topical issues facing librarians. The discussions will be led by speakers from a number of different European countries to provide a variety of viewpoints. These sessions will address the impact of new technologies on the role of the librarian and library management. 

SLA Europe has enlisted expert panellists from across Europe, and the wider world. Together with their audiences they will examine the impact of digitisation, mobile technologies and social media on librarians, libraries and their users

 Panellists from Italy, France , the Netherlands and the UK are expected to exchange their experiences of libraries going digital.

In putting social media under the spotlight, Jakob Harnesk from EBSCO and a panel from Spain, France (including myself!), Sweden and the UK will draw on evidence from Europe-wide surveys to help predict the future for 21st century librarians.

Complete details of the programme are available online at
