In January, I gave a brief Technology Showcase presentation at the American Library Association’s Midwinter conference in Boston. The Technology Showcase is a forum for companies to “highlight the latest trends in library technology.” Our (Credo Reference Limited) slot was the last session of the last day, so attendance was a bit less than the numbers who showed up for Al Gore’s earlier keynote. It was still fun and some of those attending even took notes.
We announced “Topic Pages” at the conference — a new approach to presenting and organizing reference resources around a single topic — and the talk described how we select topics, select the content that goes with them and how we describe related topics.
