InSITE-Connect: A Model For Dynamic Interdisciplinary Interaction
As prominently stated on its homepage, the Informing Science Institute is “an organization of colleagues helping colleagues … [that] draw[s] together people … who teach, research, and use information technologies to inform clients … [and who] share their knowledge with others,” regardless of [their respective] disciplines [http://informingscience.org/].
While its meetings and publications provide opportunities to communicate, current and emerging online technologies have the potential of facilitating greater collaboration between and among scholars and their publics, regardless of location, time, or academic focus.
In this presentation, we will provide an overview of select online professional and social networks, and describe the features and functionalities that can foster more dynamic interaction within the diverse InSITE communities. The presentation will conclude with a demonstration of a proposed online professional network.

I Would Like To Thank Eli Cohen, Director and Fellow, Informing Science Institute, and Alex Koohang, Dean and Professor, School of Information Technology, Macon State College, for their kind invitation and support to KeyNote at InSite 2009.
I Am Greatly Interested In Learning Of Exemplar Professional / Organizational /Society Social Networks Sites To Profile In This Presentation.
IMHO One Of The Best Exemplar Professional Online Social Networks Is The Recently Established Ning-Based Conversants Conference/Conversation That Is Devoted To Participatory Librarianship [http://conversants.ning.com/] .
