I’ve been asked to give 2 CE Course Workshops atin New Orleans.
Practical Open Source Software for Libraries and Librarians
Saturday, 06/12/2010 1:00PM – 5:00PM
The library community is a buzz about open source software (OSS). What will it mean to our libraries? How can it save us money and time? What will open source mean to our libraries? More flexibility and freedom! Why open source; Because both the open source community and the library world live by the same rules and principles. This course will give you the facts about OSS by not only introducing you to what OSS is, how it is developed and maintained, and what it means for libraries, but also by providing attendees with a toolbox of over 50 OSS products to use in their libraries.
Library Mashups: Exploring New Ways to Deliver Library Data
Sunday, 06/13/2010 8:00AM -12:00PM
Learn what mashups are and how they can be used, plus share examples from libraries around the world. Attendees will learn what tools to use to mash up library data with content from the web to reach more patrons. This hands-on workshop includes examples such as using maps to enhance library data, using Flickr for digital collections, and creating library websites with data from several information sources.
These workshops are for CE credit and if there aren’t enough registrants by the 27th of April they will be canceled. If you’re interested register soon!! The registration link can be found via the.
I hope I’ll get to see some of you there!
