Last week, I visited Minneapolis, MN and presented a workshop on social media best practices. Here are my slides.

Have you ever helped organize a conference? There are quite a few jobs that need to get done, including handing out badges, creating the program, promoting the event, speaking … and moderating conference sessions.
I’ve been asked to moderate sessions at a number of conferences over the last couple of years. It’s fun, and sometimes a bit challenging! If you’ve never done it before, or wondered what’s needed to be a moderator … don’t worry – I’ve got you covered!
Here are some tips on moderating at conferences and events:
If you have never done any moderating … what are you waiting for? Try it out and see if you like it!

I just got back from a whirlwind 4 days of Internet Librarian 2015. As usual, it was a really useful conference for me – lots of solid tips, learning, and networking with cool techie librarians.
Here are the slide deck versions of my presentations:
Tech Trends for Libraries in 2016
Aligning Digital & Print Content: Editorial Content Calendars
Analytics for Social Media
Writing for the Web
I also lead a panel discussion on Innovation in Libraries. It went really well … but no slides for that one.
Next week, I’ll be in Monterey, CA at Internet Librarian. It’s a cool conference in a fun city. Here’s what I’ll be talking about while there:
If you’re attending, make sure to say hi! If you’re not attending, you can follow the tweets using #InternetLibrarian.
I recently spoke at the New England Library Association’s ITS Spring Event in Portsmouth, NH. Fun day, cool people!
I spoke about library website UX, and provided some tips on making library websites easier to use. They made a video of my talk – here it is!
Here’s another talk from that day. This panel includes two case studies of library website redesign projects, from Andrea Bunker and Sarah Leonardi. They have different perspectives – so watch this one too!
