CIL2006, Laptops and Notetaking



laptopsOne final video from the Computers in Libraries 2006 conference. This one is from Paul Miller (the Talis guy) speaking about Web 2.0 and library catalogs.

The video is short – when watching, take a peek at all the laptops! I counted seven of them, and that was just in my tiny little section of the room.

I find it interesting to watch the switch from paper-and-pencil notetaking to laptop and mobile types of electronic notetaking (this video included, I suppose).

    And that arm with the long sleeved red shirt that is WRITING ON PAPER is none other than that luddite Meredith Farkas! Proof that I am decidedly 1.0 (or that my laptop ran out of charge). ;)

    Great meeting you Dave! Keep in touch!

    People say that Internet Librarian and Computers in Libraries are very similar, but if you compare your screenshot of CiL2006 above and Libraryman’s image from IL2005,(link below) they are obviously quite different!

    In small meetings, laptops are a no no for note taking. It distracts from the meeting and can be noisy. People should use a pen and paper for note taking or record the conversation for later.

    The only “noise” I’ve ever encountered in note-taking was from a librarian who clicked her pen non-stop during a 90 minute meeting (not to be confused with the meetings where she tapped her fingernails on the table for minutes at a time). Laptops allow you to take longer, better notes that are more quickly assembled into meeting or trip reports.
