I was fortunate to have been invited to teach a session in the Canadian Association of Law Library’s New Law Librarians Institute 2012 earlier this month. The focus of the one-week program is substantive law, but my session was of a more practical nature, entitled “Knowledge Management in the Legal Setting.”

I was asked to provide a paper related to the content of my discussion, and am pleased to share it here with everyone (click the image to download the PDF document):

I was recently invited to give a webinar about using wikis for conference planning and event coordination by the Association of Independent Information Professionals (AIIP), an organization I’ve been a member of since last year. That specific subject really was a way to introduce the topic of wikis to my fellow members, so not only did I talk about event planning, but also I talked about setting up wikis generally for larger administrative projects.

The slides below are based on that talk (I used a shorter deck with a simpler background in the actual webinar).

I hope you find this helpful. This really only just touched the tip of the iceberg! If you have questions, feel free to post them in the comments below or send me a shout via Twitter @conniecrosby or via email

If you are interested in wikis and happen to be in the Toronto area, we’d love to see you at Toronto Wiki Tuesdays, the monthly meetup group organized by my fellow knowledge management consultant Martin Cleaver. A lot of what I know about wikis I have learned in attending these meetings. In other cities, the group is called Wiki Wednesdays. Well worth checking out!

In February of this year I was an organizer of PodCamp Toronto. This year we had about 900 people in attendance–up from 650 in 2009. It was our fourth year, my third as an organizer. WHIR (Web Host Industry Review) sat down with me at the end of the weekend to get my thoughts on how PodCamp has evolved over the years, as well as people’s awareness of social media generally. Also in this interview is superstar podcaster Steve Saylor.

Some of my mentions in this episode:

  • ChangeCamp meeting in Toronto on Tuesday, February 16, 2010 working on a civic engagement toolkit. While the session is full for participants, we are looking for volunteers to act as scribes as I mention in the video. If you have a laptop with good battery and would like to join me in liveblogging at a table via feel free to contact me and I will pass your name along. Scribes show up at 4 pm, and the show gets underway around 5:30 or 6:00 pm. I mention one of the people leading us in the evening, Mark Kuznicki, who inspires me to do more in leading and connecting people.
  • PodCamp Toronto - will you be joining us? February 20 & 21, 2010 at Ryerson’s Rogers Communication Centre.  The Schedule is now live so that presenters may add their sessions in.
  • Personal Brand Camp 2 - an event including Humber PR students learning about social media and how to build an online presence. I am giving Michael Cayley a hand with this. This event will be held in conjunction with Third Tuesday Toronto on February 23, 2010, a speaker series about social media for the PR industry, courtesy of Joseph Thornley. Our speaker for the evening will be Mitch Joel on (what else?) personal brand.
  • Ontario Library Association’s OLA Superconference, February 24-27, 2010. Look for me at the Knowledge Ontario booth where I will be helping out periodically.
  • Over on I usually post every Monday. This week’s post:  Google Buzz Already Raising Privacy Concerns.

And did I mention my book? No? I’ve been proofreading the final proofs! We’re almost ready for the printer!

Something a little new: catching you up on all I’m doing (well, except real client work!) in a chatty video.  Let me know what you think–is this of interest? Should I do this again? Are there questions you would like me to answer??
