Drupal for Libraries - Slides

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 2/29/08 (6:34pm)

First, I'd like to thank everyone for coming. I appreciated the energy and enthusiasm -- plus the good questions.

Above are the slides for the first part. For the second part, see the screencast "Creating a Library Database Page with Drupal".

I should have the audio file up in a few days. [Done 3/4/08]

NOTE: the 'full-screen' version at SlideShare actually looks pretty good. Have a look...

For the person who was having trouble using the "Sandbox" at opensourcecms.com, try the demo at http://drupal.demo.civicrm.org/

If anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me.

Again, thanks both to MLS and to the people who came!

UPDATE: Nice news from Slideshare:

Hey leoklein!

Your slideshow Drupal for Libraries has been included in the Spotlight section on SlideShare.

Enjoy your day! the SlideShare team

Must be the picture of me hanging upside-down that did it.

Submitted by Leo Klein on Tue, 2/19/08 (2:36pm)

-- Link to Full Version (800x600) here... --

In anticipation of my talk 'Drupal in Libraries' that I'll be giving to the Metropolitan Library System on Fri., 2/29 (1:30p-4:30p), I'm releasing the screencast "Creating a Library Database Page with Drupal".

The talk will be about Drupal in the context of Open Source Software and Content Management Systems as well of course as its application in a library environment. (more info and rsvp...)

The screencast goes over the points I'll be making in the second part of my talk.

Have a look and tell me what you think.

UPDATE: The slides and audio from my presentation are now available. You can access them by going here...

drupal_250x250.gif Okay, this one is so far off it's almost crazy to talk about, but since they just posted it, I thought I might as well put out the word -- at least for people in the Chicagoland area interested in Drupal.

Web 2.0 Presentation on Slideshare.net

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 5/5/07 (11:49am)

This is neat. I've been playing around with Slideshare.net and found that they have an option to embed presentations on other sites -- just like YouTube.com.

Here for example, is the presentation called "Web 2.0 Bookcamp" that I gave to librarians from National Louis, Benedictine and College of Dupage back in February:

Leo Klein at Benedictine University: I'd like to thank all of the librarians who came to my talk on Web 2.0 at Benedictine University yesterday.

We had a good group with representation from National Louis, Benedictine and the College of DuPage. Everyone was completely engaged and asked great questions -- even though I ran half an hour longer than scheduled (sorry).
