Northeast Chapter Workshop on Emerging Technology

April 25, 2013

The Northeast Chapter is looking forward to hosting “Tweet a Pin in the Cloud: Answering Your Questions on Emerging Technology” on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at The University of Scranton in the DeNaples Center.

Our keynote speaker, Nicole Engard, MLIS & Director of Open Source Education at ByWater Solutions, will help to “demystify” new and emerging technologies and help you to better understand what they are and how you can start using them in your library.

We are excited for the inaugural Pecha Kucha event which will have between six to ten different presenters covering everything from crowdfunding to Pinterest.

There will also be breakout sessions on “Open: From Open Access to Open Source” presented by George Aulisio, The University of Scranton; “Technology from Children to Teens” presented by Elizabeth Davis, Lackawanna County Children’s Library; “Mobile Librarianship” presented by Kristen Yarmey, The University of Scranton; and “Knowledge Commons and Maker Spaces” presented by Leslie Christianson and Julie Watson, Marywood University.
Directions to The University of Scranton can be found here: http://www.scranton.edu/admissions/visit-info/directions-to-campus.shtml. On the PDF of the campus map, the DeNaples Center is building #38 and the parking pavilion is #17. Please park on level 4 of the roof.

You can register online at www.palibraries.org. We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
