As usual, I had a great time at Computers in Libraries 2012 (#CILDC). I learned some interesting things, and met some really cool people too.
I also gave a few presentations (ok – five presentations). Here are a couple of my slidedecks and some notes people took during the presentations, so you can get a feel for my sessions. Enjoy!
1. Seven Essential Elements to an Awesome Library Website
2. Digital Hangouts: Reaching Outside the Building
4. Benchmark Study – Library Spending and Priorities 2012 (another panel – notes from Joanna’s Conference Reports blog).
So I’m at Computers in Libraries 2012 in Washington DC – always a great conference! Make sure to check out presentations online, and follow the #cildc hashtag on twitter… Here’s a couple of notes from a session … more to come later!
I walked in late to this session, but what I heard was great.
Jeff Wisniewski was talking about mobile stuff, and said this:
mobile first is different than mobile-friendly! Then gave examples of how some people are redesigning websites with tablets and smartphone functionality in mind.
Next up – Cindy Hart, talking about augmented reality and library resources for enhanced digital storytelling…
they used http://tagwhat.com/ to help them create stories. Looks like a cool tool to check out!
If you’re going to be at Computers in Libraries 2008 on Sunday (April 6!!!), then stop by this cool new event (swiped from Aaron’s blog):
What: Gaming (& Gadgets!) Night
Where: CIL 2008, Jefferson Room
When: Sunday, April 6th, 5:30-8:00 pm
How much: FREE
Who: You and other people interested in gaming
Jenny Levine and I have given a few gaming workshops at past Computers in Libraries and Internet Librarian conferences. After the sessions we’ve opened up the room to anyone interested in playing some games and/or learning about gaming. It’s proven to be a popular and really fun time, so this year Information Today has turned the post-workshop gameplay into a featured event. With refreshments even!
Go read the full post here. I plan on being there!
