Dear Liberation Tech Colleagues,

Tech Networks of Boston (also known as "TNB") is pleased to invite
nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session on July 21st, about how
professional librarians can serve as knowledge management allies to
nonprofit organizations. The featured guests for this session will be a
distinguished panel that combines expertise in library science and
nonprofit technology:

o   David Leonard, Interim President, Boston Public Library, and formerly
BPL's chief technology officer

o   Betsey Lippmeier, Curator, Kirstein Library at Boston Public Library

o   Rachael Stark, Librarian, New England Institute of Art, Freelance
Information Librarian, and co-author of the Annkissam white paper
"Knowledge Management is like Sorting Socks: KM for Nonprofit Organizations"

o   Kevin Palmer, Chief Operating Officer of Annkissam, and co-author of
the Annkissam white paper "Knowledge Management is like Sorting Socks: KM
for Nonprofit Organizations"

Here is what we hope that nonprofit professionals will get out of this

o   An overview of how professional librarians, acting as consultants, can
assist nonprofits in organizing internal knowledge, information, and data
with their expertise in knowledge management, knowledge architecture, and
systems of classifying information.

o   An overview of the kinds of knowledge, information, and data that are
publicly available to nonprofit organizations.

o   An introduction to Kirstein Library, the branch of BPL that specializes
in assisting nonprofit and for-profit organizations in Massachusetts.

o   An understanding of how professional librarians can help you identify
the knowledge you need, and gain access to it.

o   Brainstorming about how information technology professionals and
librarians can work together to assist nonprofits.

Please note:

to learn with and from their peers in other organizations.
