Trendy Topics on Tuesday

I’m participating in the Trendy Topics online conference this Tuesday – sign up if it looks interesting! Here’s a blurb about it:

TAP Information Services is pleased to announce the sixth in a dynamic monthly series of online workshops librarians can enjoy right at their desktops on hot topics. The latest conference on “Library Websites” is scheduled for Tuesday July 13. Aaron Schmidt, from the District of Columbia Public Library is the keynote speaker. Schmidt will speak on “Improving Library Services by Recognizing That You’re a Designer.” In this talk, he will introduce attendees to the world of user experience design. His talk will contain practical tips for making library websites easier to use and how the same methods can be used for every library service.
