So this year I got accepted for a TechTalk at the 2015 ACRL Conference. I was honored to present with Nicole Vasilevsky from the Oregon Health Sciences University. On a personal note I got a new iphone 6 plus while in Portland (Tax Free) that is unlocked and works on all world cell networks. The slide from our talk are shown below:
As you can see from this picture – David Minor aka Pemulis kicks off this year’s PASIG Meeting in San Diego. We were hosted by the UCSD Libraries, my old home, and SDSC, another of my old SD haunts. It was great to see the new SDSC facility as well as being able to catch up with old friends and meet new ones as well. I gave a talk on storage components of the HathiTrust Research Center. My slides are shown here –
So last week I got to attend a new event sponsored by ER&L called Designing for Digital (see Twitter Design4Lib). This conference had some great library as well as external perspectives on user experience design. The keynotes were great and had very broad experience in this area (see opening keynote @jkolko below who is VP of Product, Innovation, and Design at Blackboard).
