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.

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.

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.
