Nicole C. Engard, editor of “Library Mashups: Exploring new ways to deliver library data” (http://mashups.web2learning.net), will explain what mashups are, how they can be used and share examples from libraries around the world.
In the first half of this workshop, attendees will learn about some of the tools they can use to mash up library data with content from the web to reach more patrons. Examples include using maps to enhance library data, using Flickr for digital collections and creating library websites with data from several information sources.
After learning the basics and seeing examples from other libraries around the world, attendees will have a chance to watch the use of Mashups live.
After attending this talk, librarians will be able to:
- Define what a mashup is and identify mashups on library sites and the web
- Find tools and APIs to gather data for their own library sites
This webinar will be delivered via SEFLIN Connect. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the class.
Staff from Florida libraries may register for this workshop at no charge. Priority will be given to SEFLIN members. Non-members will be placed on a waiting list and added as space permits after the registration deadline.
