My Presentations at Internet Librarian 2014

 

Last week, I gave four presentations at Internet Librarian 2014. As usual, it was a really useful conference, full of takeaways for me.

Here are the presentations I gave:

Web Trends to Watch in 2015: web design trends to watch for, think about, and maybe adapt (included in this post).

Emerging Technology Trends in Libraries for 2015: 10 emerging technology trends, and how they might affect libraries. This was a three hour pre-conference session.

Make your Website UX ROCK: All about basic website UX improvements.

Five Firsts of Website Strategy: This one was presented at the Library Leaders Digital Strategy Summit, which ran concurrently to Internet Librarian. Fun time! I prepared slides, and then the format changed at the last minute. So instead of slides, I gave short table talks about my topic. Much fun and some good discussion happened.

Enjoy!

My Slides for Los Angeles Public Library

Last week, I visited the Los Angeles Public Library‘s central library, and spoke as part of their Innovation Leadership Program. So I re-worked my Improving the Customer Experience presentation and re-did all the slides.

Speak at Internet Librarian 2014!

Have you ever attended Internet Librarian? It’s a great library-technology-focused conference put on by Information Today.

Information Today does a great job at getting information professionals of all types relevant, useful, and most importantly – current information. They do this through conferences like Internet Librarian and Computers in Libraries, and by publishing books on those topics (and yes, they have published both my books. Definitely NOT the reason these conferences rock, but still … ).

My assignment to you, if you can attend: don’t just attend – submit a speaker proposal, too! That’s how I got started speaking – my first national presentation was at Internet Librarian 1997 (on websites, of all things).

So – go submit a speaking proposal. Right now. Then don’t totally freak out if you get picked to speak :-) And hey – I’m on the Organizing and Review committee this year. Really looking forward to hearing your ideas!
