Overview of Libraries and Transliteracy Session at Computers in Libraries #cil2010

[tweetmeme source=”librarianbyday” only_single=false]At the recent Computers in Libraries Conference I had the honor of presenting a session on transliteracy with Buffy Hamilton and Matt Hamilton (no relation).  Part of the goal of this blog is to show transliteracy from a broad perspective. It’s why we have school, university, college, and public librarians writing for it.  This presentation was no different.  I tackled the general introduction to transliteracy with my presentation.

Buffy address the position of school libraries and media specialist.

Matt addressed the role of the IT department.  It’s important that we work with IT to accomplish many of the goals related to providing what our patrons need.

We crammed it all into 45 minutes.  I really wish we each had an hour for our sections. It is so hard to tell from the stage how well a new message is being received but based on the tweets it was well received.  I created a tag cloud from all the conference tweets on that day and based how prominent transliteracy is, I think we were heard.

I’d like to thank everyone who came to the presentation and tweeted or took notes.
