Searching the "New" Web: Blogs and RSS

Sorry for the absence last week. I was at the Ohio Regional and Chicago Association of Law Libraries (ORALL/CALL) joint meeting in Indianapolis.
It was a great conference with a wide variety of speakers. . . including me. My presentation was entitled, Searching the “New” Web: Blogs and RSS. Other sessions that I was able to attend included, “Taking the Library to the Patrons,” “Publishing Opportunities for Law Librarian,” and “Identify Theft.”
The latter was particularly interesting. Indiana University School of Law Professor James P. Nehf described the growing problem of identify theft. He discussed efforts being made to combat it and offered tips on how we can protect ourselves. Look for a write up in an upcoming LLAW Newsletter.
