CARCIT (Collaborative Action for Reference Competencies and Information Technology)

I had the pleasure of attending a CARCIT forum last week “Showcasing Innovation”. It was held at the lovely Murdoch University campus in the Freehills Lecture Theatre and attended by librarians, mostly from other Perth universities, with a smattering of those from other colleges (four of us from Central TAFE). I was particularly interested in the ways that blogs, wikis, podcasting and other Web2 features are being used in the library world. University libraries are better funded and have more staff to enable them to spend time on these ideas but Central is doing its best to keep up with them.

The CARCIT wiki is at http://carcit.lis.curtin.edu.au and has the outlines of most of the presentations plus many other useful ideas.

Thanks for your comment on my blog, Maeve. I wish we'd had time after the talks for the forum as I would have loved to have been able to talk some more. Ah well maybe next time :)

Keep in touch, and keep blogging!
