Giz and I were invited to submit a presentation proposal for the LAUNC-CH Research Forum that was held on May 5, 2010 at UNC-Chapel Hill. LAUNCH-CH is the Librarians’ Association of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The afternoon event consisted of several poster sessions and 3 “paper presentations.” Giz and I talked about our current collaboration with Forsyth County Public Library to educate local non-profit organizations and county citizens about how to preserve, organize, describe and make accessible their cultural heritage materials. This project was made possible through an LSTA Outreach Services Grant.
We enjoyed telling the audience about our project, and, on a personal note, it was great to be on the podium once again with Giz! He is always an energetic speaker and we both thought the audience showed interest in the project! We did our visuals in Prezi, which you can see below:
