Thank you to everyone who made it to the 2013 annual conference. The co-chairs really enjoyed speaking with (and meeting) all of the SSIG members who stopped by our interest group table. SSIG was thrilled to sponsor the session, “Better Together: Reimagining Library Social Media Content Through Student Collaboration” presented by Jessica Hagman and Janet Carleton of Ohio University. These two presenters gave a wonderful overview with lots of concrete examples of the many ways they’ve used students to generate, post and guide library social media content.
We’d also like to congratulate the winner of our 2013 Support Staff Presenter Grant. Donald Pearson is the Knowledge Management & Information Technology Specialist at the Mount Carmel Heath Sciences library. He offered an extremely helpful session on the use of cloud computing in academic libraries. Congrats, Donald!
The co-chairs are currently investigating topics and locations for a Spring workshop. Details will be announced as they come available.
