Greg Notess and Web 2.0

Don’t miss Greg Notess, our opening keynote speaker on Wednesday morning at the National Arts Centre.

An internationally-known conference speaker on search engines and other Internet topics, Greg has spoken at conferences such as Internet Librarian, Online Information, Web Search University, the Special Libraries Association Annual Conference, and international meetings in London, Oslo, Stockholm, Paris, Pretoria, Montreal, Copenhagen, Sydney, Zagreb, and several locations in India.

On the Web, Greg maintains Search Engine Showdown http://searchengineshowdown.com, which reviews, compares, analyzes, and tries to keep current up with rapidly changing Web search tools.

Greg’s talk will examine the rise of Web 2.0. Communication and community are again being promoted on the Web. New search tools, unique databases, and novel approaches appear and add the ability for viewers to comment, discuss, and rate information. With greater ability for data interchange, new sites can wrap old information in new designs.

The new tools offer certain advantages for the health librarian, but by no means do they replace all the old tools. This presentation gives an overview of new tools with particular attention to their scope, accuracy, overlap, and unique features. Explore new communication options for communicating with users and leveraging the best of Web 2.0.
