B302: Not Your Usual Selfieā€”Or Content!

11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Curt Tagtmeier, Digital Collections Librarian, Highland Park Public Library, @holdenfinch11 (Twitter),
Julia Tryon, Commons Librarian for Research & Education, Phillips Memorial Library + Commons, Providence College

Here are two innovative case studies. Tagtmeier shows how libraries are helping local authors wind their way through self-publishing and provides a practical demonstration of the steps to publish an ebook through Amazon’s Createspace. Tryon’s initiative replaces the old notion of the bibliography. Librarians can now collect citations about a particular topic, encode the related texts using the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium’s guidelines and freely curate materials online.  Hear how Tryon is using the XML editor <oXygen/> to text-encode articles, books, and other materials to create a searchable database for the genus Rosa.
