PDA Conference for Librarians/Everyone, post!

Hello! I had a question about whether everyone could post and what the difference
is between posting to the blog or just the list. If you want to post to the blog, you
have to go to the blogger website, sign in (after receiving an invitation which I would
gladly :) send), and post. This post would be on the web page and go to the whole
handheld librarian group. If you want to just post to everyone in the yahoo group,
send an email to the whole group and it will go to the group but not the web page.
This is a community blog/group-everyone join in! If you want to post to the blog,
email me and I will send you an invite!

PDA Conference for Librarians
OSF Saint Francis Medical Center Library & Resource
Center and the University of Illinois at Chicago
Library of the Health Sciences-Peoria are pleased to
announce a PDA conference for librarians: “Point of
Care to Your Palm: PDAs Playing in Peoria!”

The conference will take place on Friday, June 7, at
the University of Illinois College of Medicine at
Peoria as the culmination of an LSTA grant project
funded by the Illinois State Library, a division of
the Office of the Secretary of State.

Keynote speaker for the conference is Mari Stoddard,
Head of Educational Services at the University of
Arizona’s Health Sciences Library in Tucson. Her
keynote speech will address current and future trends
of pdas in the library and health care professions.
Ms. Stoddard is widely known throughout the library
field for her expertise on handheld computing. Besides
creating and teaching a series of workshops on
palmtops at the health sciences library, she has
presented workshops and papers on palmtops and
information management to the American Medical
Informatics Association, Medical Library Association,
American Library Association, and the Alliance for
Innovation in Science and Technology Information.

The conference will start at 8:00 A.M. and end at 4:30
P.M. Topics to be covered include an introduction to
and basics of PDAs; an overview of medical
applications for the PDA; selecting and evaluating
medical content for the PDA; integrating PDAs into
library services and support; and vendor demos. The
day will also include a panel discussion of the grant
project, viewpoints on PDA use, and the library role
in PDAs from PDA users and clinicians.
