I have been swamped at work and pretty quiet hereÂ inÂ my blog. But I gave a few talksÂ recently. So I wanted to share those at least.
I presented about how to turn the traditional library IT department and its operation that is usuallyÂ behind the scene into aÂ more patron-facing unit at the recent American Library Association Midwinter Meeting back in January. This program was organized by the LITA Heads of IT Interest Group. In March, I gave a short lightning talkÂ at the 2016 Code4Lib Conference about the data visualization project of library data at my library. I was also invited to speak at the USMAI (University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions) UX Unconference and gave a talk about user experience, personas, and the idea of applying library personas to library strategic planning.
Here are those threeÂ presentation slides for those interested!
