I'm the Web Systems Manager at the University of Michigan Libraries. In my copious free time, I write about RSS, content syndication, and other 2.0 sorts of things at RSS4Lib:  Innovative Ways Libraries Use RSS. See my web site for a biography and publications.


This is my first time attending or speaking at Computers in Libraries (though I spoke at Intranets several times in the late '90s). My colleague Mike Creech and I will talk about "Findability: Information not Location," session A305 -- the last time slot of the conference. Please come. We don't want to speak to an empty room.


Get in touch with me by email ( ken at varnum dot org ) or IM ( kvarnum at mac dot com ).
