I recently had the pleasure of doing my final two presentations for 2013. The first was New Technologies: Creating the Ultimate Library Experience. I co-presented this mini-version of The Beast with Toby Greenwalt and Richard Kong of the Skokie Public Library. It was such a pleasure to speak to the Laconi Circulation crowd!
The second was An Indie State of Mind, a presentation on merchandising, displays, and what librarians can learn from independent booksellers. I created this new presentation for the Adult Services staff at Downers Grove Public Library and we had such a blast! About part-way through, I passed out index cards and sharpies so everyone could make their own shelftalkers. It was so much fun!!
And with those two done, I am all done with presentations for 2013. It was a very (very!) busy year - 14 presentations in all. I learned so much from every single one of them. You can check them all out, here: http://bit.ly/186I5Pb
