Conference webcasts and presentations online!

A week has passed since IASSIST 2009. I hope most of you have made it safely back home by now - and are ready to refresh the memories by watching the conference webcasts and viewing presentations. Webcasts of all three plenaries and Thursday and Friday's concurrent sessions in the Small Auditorium are now available. We didn't have cameras available during the Wednesday sessions, so no videos of these presentations, sorry! But most of the presentations are already online - a few are still missing either because we didn't have them or we are waiting for an updated version. Please send in any missing presentations or email me if there are mistakes that should be corrected!
