Have you registered yet for the 2010 National Diversity in Libraries Conference at Princeton University?
I’m one of the panel speakers and would LOVE to have you join in on our discussion.
Amy Bowllan who writes as a community blogger on the School Library Journal website will discuss how blogging about a thought can grow into a transformative project anywhere on the globe. She will describe how to maintain an effective online presence and how this information acquired here can effectively transform how we teach.
Claiming the center: Online community, activism and advocacy – LaTonya Baldwin, Amy Bodden Bowllan, Edith Campbell, Doret Canton
What are you doing to improve your professional online presence? Are you blogging? Tweeting? Through the creation of blogs, wikis and websites individual members of marginalized groups are using the Internet to connect and mobilize with readers, writers, educators and other literacy advocates around the country/globe. Meet the members of our community, learn about the resources we share and the work we do to promote authors of color, provide book reviews, debate issues and rally together in dynamic projects such as Writers Against Racism (W.A.R.). Witness how our individual interests have grown into community platforms.
