Brian Rosenblum in Czech Republic

For those of you that attended Brian Rosenblum’s presentation on Libraries as Publishers at last week’s CALC Summit, you might be interested to know that your colleagues in Europe got to enjoy his presentation as well!

Patrick Danowski, a librarian from Berlin, posted a comment to his blog, Bibliothek 2.0 und mehr (Library 2.0 and more) earlier this week about a Library 2.0 conference he had attended in the Czech Replublic. In it, he blogged on Brian’s presentation. Congratulations Brian!

What a small world!

Incidentally, I ran across PatrickD’s blog at If you haven’t visited this site, you definitely should. It’s like MySpace for academic librarians. Very nice venue for communicating and networking with other librarians around the world who share your interests!

  1. Hi Rhonda,

    just a small thing: The CASLIN conference was in Slovakia (near Bratislava) but is oranized together with czech people.

  2. Patrick,

    Thanks for the correction! I misunderstood the
    website! It looks like it was a good conference.


  3. Hi Rhonda,

    Thanks for the comments. As Patrick said, CASLIN is a joint Czech and Slovak conference which alternates between the two countries. This year it was held in Slovakia. One of the themes this year was Web 2.0, and it was interesting to hear how similar the conversations were at both CASLIN and CALC. Small world indeed!

  4. I have seen some crappy posts but this one really impresses me. Good work.
