Chalk Talk logo

Who: All SUL and Coordinate Library staff
When: Thursday, April 18, 2:30 - 4 pm
Where: Green Library, IC Classroom

Two years ago last month, the Digital Initiatives Group (DIG) hosted the first in a revived series of Stanford Libraries Chalk Talks, titled the Mobile Technology Petting Zoo. To commemorate our anniversary, this month's Chalk Talk will be Technology Petting Zoo 2.0. We invite you to grab your smart phone, tablet, or laptop and engage in some guided, hands-on interactions with cool or emerging technologies and applications for library work.

Ronnie Fields (DIG) is calling all instructors, presenters, trainers...and anyone else interested in displaying presentations from a wireless device. Bring your iPad or iPhone and come see a whole new world of teaching possibilities using Apple TV and Airplay.

Getting started in video recording
Erin Scott (Academic Computing Multimedia Services) will be demonstrating the essentials of setting up recording equipment for filming presentations or interviews. She will cover best practices concerning audio and video set up, basic videography how-tos and how-not-tos: avoiding common mistakes and problems.

IM/Chat for work group productivity
Dean Steede (Academic Computing Technology Services) will present and chat about instant messaging applications and how they can be used to enhance communication in work groups.

Pen scanners
Charles Fosselman (East Asia Library) has a scanner in hand, literally, and will show how hand-held pen scanners are being used in EAL. Bring along a document to scan if you'd like to try it out.

Regina Roberts (Humanities and Social Sciences) will demo iAnnotate, an app for reading, marking up, and sharing documents and images. She'll also discuss the new SUL Mobile Users Group.

SUL Chalk Talks bring together the diverse perspectives of library workers, technologists, practitioners and users to examine some of the most important issues, developments and dreams of the 21st-century library at Stanford and beyond, aiming to engage, educate and inspire staff working in all areas of SUL.
