Meetings and Seminars
The first issue of Online Currents for 2012 promises to be a treat with three articles and several sections to choose from. Matt Moore reviews a selection of the research literature on email to identify key lessons for effective organisational use, Glenda Browne discusses three recent conferences on editing, style and indexing that may be of use to information professionals and Jon Jermey reflects on Moodle, an open-source training package for educators. The sections include the usual interesting mix, with the brand new Web Watch exploring sites with useful content, thought-provoking ideas and opportunities for interaction appearing in the Journal for the first time.
The December 2011 Part of Online Currents contains the usual mix of articles and section notes. This month the articles cover readers’ advisory tools, how academic institutions approach plagiarism, an overview of different puzzles that benefit learning, how to search for convict ancestors online and recent seminars held by AGLIN and HLA. Also included are several informative section notes such as Company News, Around the Blogs and Conferences, Meetings and Seminars.
The August 2011 issue of Online Currents proves to be another fascinating mix of material on a range of topics. There are articles on the 2011 ALIA Information Online conference, the Encyclopedia of Australian Science, successful management of corporate electronic information and environmentally friendly approaches to operating libraries. Also in this Part are the Journal’s regular sections, including, but not limited to, Around the Blogs, Databases and Aggregators and Company News.
