    Call for Proposals:

    Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services Librarians 2011 Conference
    Technical Services Renaissance
    Miami University, Oxford, OH
    May 15-17, 2011

    http://techserv.lib.muohio.edu/ovgtsl11/
     
    Description: In this time of turmoil for libraries, some Technical Services librarians are building a foundation for the future. Some study past successes and failures to guide future decisions and actions. Others apply current tools and concepts to reinvent existing services and to create innovative new services more relevant to today’s information environment. Finally, some are creating entirely new concepts and paradigms that will help drive the future of libraries. The foundation we are building will support a rebirth of function, form and purpose — a Technical Services Renaissance.
     
    Keynote speakers: Karen Coyle, Librarian and Consultant, and Susan Gibbons, Vice Provost and the Andrew H. and Janet Dayton Neilly Dean of the River Campus Libraries, University of Rochester.

      Hi --

      Unfortunately I cannot attend the conference, but you and your colleagues may be interested in the following papers and online Wiki-like system for executable English (and other languages).

      As you know, English text (like this sentence) is normally something for a person to read, but it cannot be used as a program that you can run on a computer.

      On the other hand, executable English is something that a person can read, and that you can also run on a computer.

      As befits a Wiki, shared use of the system is free.  Just point a browser to www.reengineeringllc.com .

      Since the executable knowledge is in English, Google indexes and retrieves it, acting  as a kind of registry. 

      Apologies if you have seen this before, and thanks for comments.
