Engaging Youth on their Own Terms: Instant Messaging and Gaming in Libraries

Date : Tuesday, Oct 10, 2006
Start Time : 8 a.m. Pacific
Length : 01:00:00

"Attempting to mold young library users into miniature librarians is an unfair and often futile goal. To meet their needs and ensure our institutions are supported in the future, we must listen to them! Join Aaron Schmidt and Sarah Houghton as they discuss ways to serve teens on their own turf, by creating a teen-friendly environment in your physical library and in your library's eBranch, and by providing the resources and services teens want, when and where they want them. Other topics discusses will be MySpace, iPods, and weblogs."
