Wikipedia defines “mashup” as a Web site or
Web application that seamlessly combines
content from more than one source into an
integrated experience. Internet librarians do
just that for their clients, so it is a fitting
theme for Information Today, Inc.’s 10th
Internet Librarian. This year’s conference
focuses on the challenges of Web 2.0 as well
as the leading-edge solutions for balancing
content access, new technologies, and client
demands for an integrated experience. As
the San Francisco Chronicle puts it, “Take a
pinch of Yahoo! or Google. Then stir in some
census data, photographs or crime statistics.
What you get is a mash-up.” Combining
ingredients from different online sources to
create hybrids is a hot Internet phenomenon,
especially when map or demographic
information and a variety of feeds are used.
Join us for Internet Librarian’s 10th
anniversary and see what Internet librarians
and information professionals are doing to
create integrated experiences and
compelling content mashups in their
organizations and communities.
