davidleekingThe Texas State Library & Archives Commission is very pleased to announce this very special continuing education opportunity — an online presentation by renowned library leader, author, and blogger David Lee King:

Hacking, Making, & Creating — at the library! Technology Innovations and Customer Created Content

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 — 1:30pm to 3:00pm CDT

Traditionally, when our library customers wanted to make something, we’d send them to the craft section or to the “how to write a poem” section of the library. Today’s makers want to make gadgets, 3D-printed prototypes, and a video series. And guess what? They want the library’s help!

In this webinar, renowned librarian/author/blogger David Lee King provides an overview of technology innovations that focus on “making” – including hackerspaces, digital media labs, co-working spaces, and self-publishing tools, and provides ideas on how to incorporate these innovations into your library.
