This year I’ll be doing a pre conference at Computers in Libraries with a fellow author (Brian Herzog) to help you all learn how to use mashups in your libraries to improve your websites!
W5 – Implementing Library Mashups
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
This workshop explains what mashups are, how they can be used, and shares examples from libraries around the world. Attendees learn about tools they can use to mash up library data with content from the web to reach more patrons and hear about successful mashup examples from academic and research libraries around the world as well as those in special and public libraries. Examples include using maps to enhance library data, using Flickr for digital collections, using video-sharing services to push collections into the public eye, and creating library websites with data from several information sources. This workshop is interactive, bring your own laptop so that you can experiment with mashup tools and techniques.
Check it out and all of the program for CIL this year.
