Call for Presenters
* Margaret Kipp (Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee) and "Teaching Linked Data and the Semantic Web to MLIS Students" - This short presentation will report on the scope, coverage and results of teaching a course on linked data in libraries to a group of MLIS students which encouraged them to explore aspects of information organisation through experimenting with library and non-library metadata, semantic web and web 2.0 tools for creating library mashups. One of the goals of the presentation is to start a conversation about what libraries are doing with linked data and the semantic web and how we can incorporate this knowledge into MLIS courses.
* Matthew Reidsma (Web Services Librarian, Grand Valley State University) - "Using jQuery to style hosted library services." Every library struggles to provide some sort of unified experience for its users, despite using hosted solutions for many of its resources. Getting these varied sites designed by countless different vendors to look like part of your library's site can be a challenge. I've found great success in combating the lackluster HTML and CSS of library vendors by using jQuery to make the page I want, rather than the page I have. I'll show some examples of projects I've completed as well as the Open Source projects they have spawned (360Link Reset, hasMedia?).
