Happy New Year!

Marydee Ojala @ 9:08 am

I’m finding it hard to believe that 2009 ends tonight. 2010 will see volume 34 of ONLINE, the 10th year of WebSearch University, the 15th year of Search Engine Meeting, and the 12th year of Internet Librarian International. We’ve seen massive changes in the information industry and in the information professionals’ work lives over the past few years. Here’s hoping that 2010 brings a better economy, bigger budgets, and more jobs!

In January I’ll be attending both ALA Midwinter and SLA Leadership Summit and will try to blog from those venues. And I’m making a New Year’s Resolution to blog more frequently. I’m afraid I’ve been somewhat lax about that, although I have contributed to the conference blog from Information Today Inc., which covers 4 or 5 conferences each year.

Anyone with ideas about articles for ONLINE or presenting at any of the conferences, please email me (marydee@xmission.com). I’d love to hear from you in 2010!

Intute Loses Funding

Marydee Ojala @ 8:40 am

Intute’s executive director announced this morning that Intute has lost its JISC funding and will maintain its current level of service only until the 1st of August 2010. The Intute blog post continues, “After this date, Intute will still be available but with minimal maintenance. In addition, we are looking at possibilities to develop Informs and the Virtual Training Suite and offer these as membership services.”

Intute has provided a wonderful service and has been a loyal supporter of the Internet Librarian International conference as well. We can only hope that funding will be found between now and August to keep Intute functioning.
