During the fall TEDSIG focused on preparing for the ALAO Annual Conference held on October 24 at the Roberts Centre, Wilmington, Ohio. TEDSIG was delighted to sponsor Margaret Maurer’s presentation, “Uncorking the varietals: social tagging, folksonomies, & controlled vocabularies.”
It was also TEDSIG’s pleasure to award its first annual TEDDY Award to Margaret Maurer.
TEDSIG co-chairs called a brief meeting at the conference to solicit ideas for the Spring workshop. It was agreed to concentrate on electronic journal issues and challenges and that the interest group is pursuing a grant to help meet expenses for hosting a nationally recognized speaker. Regina Reynolds of the Library of Congress is our first choice. More information will follow after the holidays.
