I’m getting ready to attend the 2nd joint conference of the Visual Resources Association and the Art Libraries Society of North America, March 24th to March 28th.
I’ll be speaking at a session titled “Engaging New Technologies” on the topic of technologies used for presentation & instructions.
My presentation will be posted to SlideShare after the conference.
Expect tweets, photos and updates…
