Christina Pikas on Using Blogs for Information Management

:: Christina Pikas is a Research Librarian at the R.E. Gibson Library and Information Center, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel Maryland, and a fellow scitech library blogger. On June 29, 2005, as part of the Emerging Information Technologies Lecture Series at the Welch Medical Library at JHU, she presented the lecture Using Blogs for Information Management.

In her presentation, Christina used screenshots from STLQ to highlight standard weblog and individual blog post components and characteristics. (Thank you, Christina!) In addition to her lecture handout and lecture slides, you can watch a video of her 30-minute presentation. Together with the handouts, this is a nice package to offer someone who wants a detailed but concise introduction to using blogs for managing information. Christina's post on her presentation is here.
