New group – information science people

I’ve set up this group after a few discussions with others – ¬†for those who are involved in (or interested in) the library world and information science. I wasn’t really sure what to call it , but hopefully this will do! Really it’s just another way of getting people together and meeting each other.

Hopefully anyone who is involved in this line of work or just interested in it will join in, and then we can share thoughts/experiences/ideas …

Vidiowiki – a community of researchers

Introducing Vidiowiki – “Research, in video . . . a community of researchers from around the world talking about their work and why it’s interesting, in 3 minutes or less. . . ”

I saw a demonstration of *this* tool at a meeting last week and I thought it might be of interest to HUB readers. Full disclosure at this point – this was built by students here at the University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics – but they do have an impressive user group building. And research groups or Universities can purchase their own private space, if required or join for free to the main Vidiowiki space.

Hopefully this is of interest/use to someone!
