IMLS, along with Heritage Preservation, is presenting two live webinar events based on the WebWise 2012 conference:
Sharing Public History Work: Crowdsourcing Data
Ben Brumfield and Sharon Leon
Thursday, June 14, 2012, 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m. EDT
Oral History in the Digital Age
Dean Rehberger and Doug Boyd
Thursday, June 28, 2012, 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m. EDT
WebWise Reprise will be hosted in the Virtual Meeting Room of the Connecting to Collections Online Community. This Online Community is part of Connecting to Collections, a multi-faceted national initiative of the Institute of Museum and Library Services to aid museums and libraries in their care of collections. The Online Community draws on many resources that were developed for the initiative, including the Connecting to Collections Bookshelf and the Raising the Bar Workshops and Webinars.
These 90 minute webinars will each begin with 20 minute video on a topic presented at WebWise 2012. Participants will watch the video live together along with some of the presenters from each panel. After the video, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions live of the speakers.
These events are being offered free of charge, and no pre-registration is required. You do not need to be a member of the Connecting to Collections Online Community to participate in these webinars. For more information, click here.
