So You Think You Can Teach? An Open Call for Webinar Presentations at METRO

Trending_Banner We're about to wrap up a summer series of webinars we're calling Trending. The series brings practitioners to the table to discuss projects, best practices, and case studies for improving library and archives services through technology. This summer we covered new initiatives in digital collection building, mobile site generation software for libraries, and cloud computing for libraries.

Not a bad season, but if the brilliant folks I know here in NYC and follow on Twitter are any indication, there's so many more great ideas we can highlight with our series. That's where you come in. Would you like to have an audience with engaged information pros in NYC? We're looking for practitioners throughout North America to share their expertise, tips, experiences, projects, and bright ideas for the Fall installment of our Trending series, and we're opening it up to you.

Recommend yourself or one of your colleagues for a one-hour webinar by August 16, 2010 by emailing Jason Kucsma with the following information:

  • Name (yours and/or person you're recommending)
  • Email (yours and/or person you're recommending)
  • Title (working title for the session; can be modified later)
  • Brief Description (a few sentences outlining the ideas, tips, projects, best practices, etc...; can be modified later)

Each webinar will be 45 minutes with time left for questions. All presenters will be compensated for their time. Presenters will be chosen by METRO from the recommended options.
