Last week I attended the 51st BBSLG (British Business Schools Librarians’ Group) Conference at Northampton.

The theme of the conference was “User Education in the 21st Century”; a topical issue at many Universities as librarians become more and more involved in teaching information skills.

The member’s sharing sessions were particularly useful and there was plenty of opportunity to talk to others, hear about their experiences and pass on good practice.

Peter Godwin came to give a talk on Information Literacy and Web 2.0 which I found particularly interesting; his main message seemed to echo that of Umbrella 2007 and other librarians – give all these new tools a go! He also showed a very amusing video on librarians from YouTube, see below.
