Daily Thoughts 01/21/2016
I went to the Metro New York Libraries annual conference today. I got up at 6:00 a.m.
The conference started at 9:00 a.m.. It was at Baruch Vertical College. It had a lot of sessions with a tremendous amount of content. Most of the content was focused on technology.
It will take me some time to sort through some of the things which I found interesting.
The Culture In Transit project was very interesting to learn about. It is setup for a mobile scanning project for local history.
Also, the final keynote was another technology project that was astounding. It was the first time that I ever saw pictures of 24 foot by 4 1/2 foot high high resolution touch screen called the CURVE, Collaborative University Research and Visualization Environment. http://sites.gsu.edu/curve/
I also attended a very interesting session on New York Public Library's Public Domain Drop. There are quite a few things I am hoping to find there. This includes old book posters and dust jackets.
I watched a session on digital privacy in libraries. I learned about New York Statute 4509 which pertains library records privacy. http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/libdev/excerpts/cvp4509.htm
I read some more of Nonviolent Communication today. I am reading about how to identify feelings and communicate how you feel to other people while minimizing conflict.
