Inmagic in the News
There’s been a ton of activity here at Inmagic – and the industry is sitting up and taking notice. Here’s just a sample of some of the great coverage we’ve been getting lately.
The Latest From the Inmagic Blog
As usual, the Inmagic blog team has been covering the hottest topics in knowledge management, social libraries and Enterprise 2.0 for our nearly 7,000 subscribers. Below is a round-up of recent favorites.
Podcasts: Our Most Popular Feature
If our blog were a high school, podcasts would be captain of the football team and king of the prom. What we’re trying to say is that they’re popular. Really popular.
In this session, media and online community author and expert, Paul Gillin, tells us about the most popular uses of communities for B2B companies. (We’ll give you a hint – product support and education.) Listen to Paul Gillin talk about what makes B2B communities tick.

Tips, Tricks, Tools and Training from Inmagic Support
The Tips, Tricks and Tools
This month, we're covering canned queries for both WebPublisher Pro and Genie. Interested? Keep reading!
If users are frequently running the same searches in WebPublisher Pro, save them time by creating a link to the results they want. These linked searches, called canned queries, enable users to simply click on a link to reach the results page rather than typing in the same search over and over.
For all the details, check out this article in our knowledgebase.
If you’re a Genie user and you’d also like to do canned queries, check out these blog posts from Inmagic superstar Lisa Weiss. She’s got you covered here and here.
Learning how to properly use, administer and configure Inmagic software to meet your organization’s unique needs is critical to a successful deployment.

On The Road Again
Just as we're getting settled back in after our time down in Washington DC for CIL 2010, we have to start preparing for SLA 2010 in New Orleans. Social Knowledge Networkers never sleep!
Wrap-Up: Computers in Libraries 2010
As usual, it was great to connect with everyone at CIL! It’s always a great mix of long-time customers and folks who are new to the community.
The Inmagic booth was bustling – but we still took a few minutes to snap some pictures. Take a peek!
For us, the highlight of the show was our CTO, Phil Green, getting the opportunity to present with Mark Patrick, the Managing Librarian for the Revs Institute for Automotive Research. The presentation, “From OPAC to SOPAC: Steps to a Social Library,” drew quite a crowd – the keynote hall was bursting!
Two attendees, Paula Hane of Information Today
and librarian Matt Phillips provided session feedback on their blogs. Read Paula's insights and reactions
and check out Matt's notes if you weren’t able to make it in person.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Inmagic booth and/or attended the presentation – we look forward to seeing you again next year!
Next Up: 2010 SLA Annual Conference
We’re getting ready to hit the Big Easy in style for SLA 2010! When you’re at the show, don’t forget to swing by to visit us in booth #412/414.
In addition to showing off the latest in Social Knowledge Networks, we’ll also be signing folks up to win an Apple iPad. (That’s if we can pry it out of the hands of our marketing team!)
We’re looking forward to a great show in New Orleans – we’ll see you there!
