April 2015 #mashcat Twitter chat: how catalogers and library technologists can build better relationships

Update 2015-04-24: the Storify of the chat is now available.

On Thursday, 23 April 2015, we’ll be holding the second Twitter chat on the #mashcat hashtag at 20:00 UTC (i.e., 21:00 BST / 22:00 CET / 4 p.m. EDT / 3 p.m. CDT / 1 p.m. PDT).

The moderator will be Erin Leach (@erinaleach), assisted by Galen Charlton (@gmcharlt). We’ll talk about how catalogers and library technologists can build better relationships. Topics might include: establishing better communication, being change agents, and coming together on areas of mutual concern — and of course, whatever YOU want to talk about.

The chat will be run like other library Twitter chats such as #libchat and #critlib:

  • Before and during the chat, tweet questions to the moderator (@erinaleach).
  • The chat moderator will tweet the questions out on the #mashcat hashtag. For example: “Q1: What RDF triple store do you recommend? #mashcat.
  • Participants can respond to the question on the hashtag, For example: “A1: We use Sesame. #mashcat.
  • Two services that can be useful in participating in Twitter chats are Twitterfall and TweetCat.
