New issue of Open Access is now available online

With so much going on in other areas I'm afraid I am posting this a bit late! But the new issue of Open Access is now on line and will be with you in paper form soon if you are a member of CILIP West Midlands.

Editor David Viner has put together a great issue focussing on Web 2 and looking at various projects running in West Midlands libraries, and the uses that West Midlands librarians are making of Web 2 tools and social networking.

Article authors include Jo Alcock, Jess Duffield, Amelia Luzzi, and there is a even a bit in there from me.

The special Web 2 issue has been released in advance of the half day CILIP West Midlands Web 2 workshops which will be run in December by Phil Bradley. If you are interested in booking a place on one of these workshops please book now to avoid disappointment.

The current issue of Open Access also calls for nominations for new committee members, and includes a reminder about the Thacker-Woods Award, which is a great opportunity for West Midlands Librarians to gain recognition (not to mention a pretty good prize!).

Give it a read - you never know what you might find out!

Don't forget, you can also follow CILIP West Midlands on Twitter, join the Facebook Group, and subscribe to the blog to keep up to date on branch activities.
