Interesting week for university librarians

And especially for this one. The biennial EDUCAUSE Conference starts in Melbourne on Sunday, going through to Wednesday, and is followed by CAUL, the twice-yearly meeting of university librarians. For this particular university librarian the week is given added variety by the calling of a university planning day on Wednesday, followed by a celebration dinner; each of us gets five minutes and three powerpoint slides. For me, the week starts today (Friday) when I have another five minutes, this time at the Melbourne leg of the Jimmy Wales Australian seminar tour; my five minutes is to represent the viewpoint of librarians, and is heavily informed by the contributors to this blog - of course, you'll all be acknowledged, very concisely.

While the week is likely to inhibit longer blog posts, this kind of thing usually reveals a rich array of previously unsuspected new words, and a little time to savour them. Well, quite a lot of time sometimes.
