Libraries as Content Collaborators & The Life of a Production Librarian
with Eli Neiburger
February 16, 2012 -- 10am to 11am Central Time
Join Library Journal Mover and Shaker Eli Neiburger, Associate Director of IT & Production at the Ann Arbor District Library, as he expands upon his compelling argument that one way for libraries to remain relevant in this current technological era is to become producers of and/or collaborators on their own content. Eli will talk about AADL's approach to digital projects, and how Production Librarians at AADL work with community partners to bring new content to the web. He'll also cover the infrastructure and skills necessary for libraries to move in this direction, and how to get started without a budget.
What's a Webinar?
Short for Web-based seminar, a webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web. A key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements -- the ability to give, receive and discuss information. Contrast with Webcast, in which the data transmission is one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience. Source: Webopedia.
