2010 CE Survey - Details on the Questions for 'Other'
2. Reasons for not coming to PNC '10 (other)
3. Factor that influences taking a CE at the meeting (other)
- I'm currently unemployed, so cost is a big issue
- October is a bad time of the year for me, as the Autumn academic quarters start in late Sept./early Oct. Not a good time of year for me to attend a conference
- Lost half of our staff, time off is now always tricky
- Relevancy of the content of the meeting
- PNC/MLA not a central focus for me
- I am going to school, too busy with work & school to add in meetings. Feel like I am keeping up with trends by contacts at school
5. Barriers to distance learning (other)
- Price and topic combined. It's about the ROI
- Price, topic, AND length of class all factor into my decision
- My schedule
- Combination of above - length of class
7. Types of online and other distance learning formats preferred (other)
- No computer at home
- Would rather leave site for a 1/2 or full day course less interruptions
- Can't get into blogs, etc.
9. Other topics/specific classes you are interested in taking
- I haven't done a number of the above, but would be open to them if the utilities were free. We're blocked from Youtube at our facility
- Videoconferenceing, room-to-room or workstation-to-workstation or variations
- I am open to participating in distance learning in any of the above formats
- I have difficulty sitting in my shared office doing any kind of scheduled online learning. I prefer asynchronous methods. I very much dislike reading much off the screen
- I would prefer integrating Slide presentations or video into an interface like Moodle where it is organized into a course progression of study, such as those Alison has organized/overseen (RML) in 2009
- YouTube is blocked at my place of work. (darn it)
- I much prefer live and in person instruction
- Anything that is more interactive than a traditional webinar and that goes beyond the "here are my slides and what I have to say" paradigm.

- A class on how to use SharePoint (or Drupal), and what are the implications for librarians
- I've been a health sciences librarian for almost 30 years, which is why I have a low interest in some of the classes. I could teach them, though
- Evidence-based research, research government information for health policy
- Change management

2)How to make your Web site more relevant to users. Including evidence-based info/links/resources
3)Medical Informatics: how can it apply to the hospital librarian?
- Double "very interested" on consumer-driven/participatory health care & librarians involvement!
- Effective use of Twitter and social bookmarking services in library science
- I really enjoyed the series on expert searching with Dolores & OHSU staff. I would love more like that
- LibGuides - advanced
- Excel - advanced
- How to manage e-journals
- Medical research - what is on the horizon in treatments, discoveries, etc. Of course this is something I could read about if I had the time, but it would be interesting to listen to a medical professional speak on this topic at the conference
- Update on copyright information--digital, print, etc.
