For calendar details see this page on upcoming.org: Technologies for Libraries and Communities: Calendars and Events. There is an iCal calendar for this event series: Thurs 5/25/06, 3-5pm.
Community Information Corps organizer Edward Vielmetti will lead a discussion on event and calendar technologies with applications in library and community information settings. We'll look at some internet standards work in this area, examine key features of calendar applications, and talk about Web 2.0 calendar tools including Google Calendar, Podbop, and upcoming.org. This is also an organizing meeting of an informal summer series on technologies for libraries and community being organized with MSI students Carl Collins and Jake Glenn.
The event is located in the connector conference room at the U of Michigan School of Information, 3d floor, in the hallway that connects West Hall to the Shapiro Library (UGLI).
