Student Affairs Discussion Group

All students and new professionals (including ArLiSNAPers) are invited to attend the Student Affairs Discussion Group meeting on Friday, April 27th in the Woodstock room at the conference hotel from 6:30 – 7:15 p.m.  This meeting has been self-scheduled directly after the Resume Mentoring sessions, and right before the 3rd Annual Pub Crawl.  Please note that the meeting will not necessarily be published in the conference program, so spread the word to those interested in joining us!  As in the past, students and new professionals will meet for 30 or 45 minutes to discuss future projects, including the group’s 2006 Annual Report and Goals ! 


Retrievr is an experimental service which lets you search and explore in a selection of Flickr images by drawing a rough sketch. VERY interesting! How many of us have at one time or another seen something on the Web and you wish you bookmarked or tagged it, and now you can’t locate it again? Maybe down the road something will be created for all of us to search our VR collections based on our sketches? ( I am sure something is in the works, but I am not in VR so I am out of touch in this area.)
