Presentations and workshop materials

As noted in my resume, I present at regional conferences on a regular basis. Here are details on two of the presentations.

CSS with Floaties On

Every Summer the Tri-State College Library Consortium holds a week-long series of technology workshops called Summer Camp (complete with silly, smore-like titles for each session). I have taught several of these sessions.

For the 2017 Summer Camp, I presented a hands-on workshop on Cascading Style Sheets for complete beginners. I created a CSS tutorial that doubled as links for my workshop as well as a cheat sheet the participants could refer to when they’ve returned to their libraries.

Digital Projects: Lessons Learned

At the Madison-Jefferson County Public Library I collaborated with County Historian Janice Barnes on a trio of digital history projects. While Indiana’s universities and metropolitan public libraries were already invested in digital projects, our library was the first smaller library in the state to take on an aggressive digitization-digital history program and to be awarded a Library Services and Technology Act grant for digitization. As such we wanted to share our experiences and help others avoid rookie mistakes. This presentation is the results of those conversations.
