Our evening begins as David Ewing takes us on a special tour of the new Dolan Center for Science and Technology, and then opens the evening's meeting by talking about the marriage of mission and planning to enhance information sharing and teaching. We'll have an inside track on an exciting new space, with an expert to guide us!

" is live, fascinating instruction.""Movies make it easier to learn." Find out just when those words were printed (long before we were born) and why you,too,can become addicted to watching science videos! James Barker talks about 'addictive learning' in his newest project to use video in ameaningful way, and to apply metadata strategies to make searching more intuitive. Jim tells us what works, what should have but didn't,what's next, and where else the project would work best. Jim's expertise is from business and academe, and he has been an invited presenter at SLA Annual Conferences. Formerly the Interim Vice President of Information Technology Services, Jim has a wealth of stories about project expectations past and future--expect him to share news bites of other projects he's working on, as well.

A SLA Internet guru, Diane Kovacs hears about all of those "out there" tools years before others do, and she applies them. This is our newest meeting feature--a "mindbreak," where she'll share and show the best/most productive of today's technologies, in small doses you can use immediately. This feature will appear regularly (ideally one item at each meeting) and is guaranteed to have you dashing back to your computer to try out the latest one! (Trust me, I've sen and used the next one.) You never know when she'll open a meeting, be the "intermission segment"or close the meeting, so make sure you're in the audience so you don'tmiss out!
