Have a question about what digital display or Web 2.0 tool to use to highlight or access your institution’s items? Or do you need to move beyond images on a static Web page but don’t have in-house tech expertise or know where to begin? The Preservation Committee is bringing together local library and cultural institution practitioners to give a PechaKucha presentation (20 slides X 20 seconds) on various digital display tools: how they use them, implementation, cost, successes, and failures.

Some proprietary tools, such as CONTENTdm, will be included in the PechaKucha, but the focus is free or open source platforms any institution can use for digital display of their items. After the PechaKucha, the presenters will convene in a panel to answer questions from attendees. If time allows, participants will break into groups focused around specific digital display tools.

Moderator: Tom Orrange, Adult & Graduate Library Services Coordinator, Medaille College
