1st International NewFeds event!

On Sunday, August 26, the NewFeds hosted their first international event–the 2nd Annual NewFeds Virtual Conference Redux! Congratulations to NewFeds Abi Morgan, Jennifer Davis, Ayaba Logan, and Danielle Walker for presenting about their conference experiences. Many thanks to our special guest presenter, Sebastian Wilke, for joining us to speak about IFLACamp. Mr. Wilke participated from Berlin, Germany, where he studies Library and Information Science and Musicology at Humboldt-Universität.

We successfully recorded part of the Redux, including the presentations by Danielle Walker and Sebastian Wilke. The recording of that portion of the Redux is available at: https://collaboration.fda.gov/p58585124/

Due to technical difficulties, our other presenters were not able to record audio via Adobe Connect. Thanks to their flexibility, we continued the Redux via conference call only. Our presentation is available at: NewFeds Redux 2012 Slides

Many thanks to our presenters and participants!

Link to NewFeds Tech Training: Zotero

On June 13, 2012, Ms. Leia Dickerson introduced 23 members of the NewFeds community to Zotero during the inaugural NewFeds Tech Training session! Many thanks to Ms. Caralyn Champa, co-chair of the NewFeds Professional Development Sub-Committee for organizing the training, and thanks to our NewFeds colleagues at the FDA who hosted it on AdobeConnect. Offering the Tech Training online allowed LIS professionals from all over the U.S. to take part, including participants from Portsmouth,VA, Fort Riley, KS, FT Polk, LA, and the US Coast Guard Academy Library (to name just a few!).

For folks who were not able to attend “live”, here is a link to a recording of the training: https://collaboration.fda.gov/p31187325/

Happy Learning, and a couple of tips:

  • Please fast forward to ~1 minute 15 secs to the “Welcome and
    Greeting.”
  • Skip from minute 14:50 until 19:00. (We had a technical hiccup and there is some silence while we were troubleshooting).
