Several good talks upcoming this fall which will have some ibiblio involvement.

First, Fred has managed to convince Social Networks researcher danah boyd to stop by next week, Thursday September 14th to visit and to give a public talk about her work. Probably about 2 pm – 3:30 pm. Trying to secure a place for her talk now.

Second, Phil Meyer and the J-School have PressThink and NewAssignment.Net‘s Jay Rosen coming by around October 4. There will be a public talk but I’m not sure when as yet.

Third, The Health Sciences Library is sponsoring a visit from Craig Silverstein, Google’s Technology Director, on Thursday, October 26, 2006 4-5:30pm at the Medical Biomolecular Research Building. I’ll be directing a panel in response to Craig’s talk.
To reserve a seat and/or to submit discussion questions and to learn more, visit the HSL’s Organizing the World’s Information: Google’s Vision for the 21st Century.
