National Meeting Preview

Whether you're looking for a sneak preview of ASIS&T's 2009 meeting in Vancouver or can't make to Canada, join PVC-ASIS&T and the CUA Chapter of ASIS&T to hear preview talks from PVC-ASIS&T members who will be giving presentations at the national meeting.

Speakers Include:

Trudi Bellardo Hahn
"The Information Connection in Times of Crisis"
A report of a federally funded project to study roles for public libraries in serving the information needs of their communities in times of disasters.

Joe Hourcle
"Interoperability in the Space Sciences"
To deal with the highly heterogeneous data needs, NASA has funded the creation of a number of specialized "Virtual Observatories" (VxOs) in the space sciences. This presentation discusses these original VxOs, as well as phenonomena based VxOs such as the Virtual Waves Observatory (VWO), browseable directories such as the Virtual Space Physics Observatory (VSPO), standardization efforts between the VxOs such as the Space Physics Archive Search and Extract (SPASE) and the associated query language SPASE-QL, as well as related international efforts.

Joan Lussky
"Social tags and other kinds of subject access occurring in public library catalogs"
