Look Out Kansas!

I’m headed your way soon! If you want to hear about and join in a fast paced and spirited conversation about libraries, gadgets, mobile technology and general library information access and future services, you are hereby invited to attend. I guess you could come from anywhere in the world to see the sessions, but I’m betting you’ll mostly be from Kansas if you come. Maybe a little Missouri? ;) Regardless, hope to see you there! Please swing by and say hi if you are there!

Now playing: Arctic Monkeys – I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor

From “my” Public Libraries Magazine editor (actually DLK and I write this together so “our” editor is a better way to say it)”, comes this for your consideration:

“the January/February issue is a *theme* issue so the feature articles will all focus on one topic. This time the topic will be Services to Teens. So, if at all possible, please try to tailor your columns to that subject for the Jan/Feb 2008 issue.”

But I’m not a YA librarian. Neither is DLK. So, we need help from the experts. We write “The Internet Spotlight” column, and are interested in getting feedback from real life librarians out there dealing with Teen/YA Services in their everyday work. If you are one of those folks and would like to be included as a quote/contributor to this issues column do this:

Reply in the comments *or* send me an email explaining what your “Internet Spotlight” is in relation to YA/Teen Services. This could also be what your YA patrons see as their “Internet Spotlight” or it could be anything related to YA’s or YA services and the internet. You know, a web site and online activity, whatever you observe as a spotlight subject. It’s really open ended and can be factual or opinionated (both are useful). A paragraph is a nice length, but more or less works well too.

So, tell me, what is your YA/Teen Services “Internet Spotlight”???

Thanks!
