CT6: Helping the Underserved: Picture Yourself Online!

2:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.
Arieh Ress, Senior Librarian, Adult Services, The New York Public Library

Many NYPL patrons are homeless, many more lack access to digital cameras and those who have them often don't know how to use them. Our library ordered a pop-up backdrop and I printed a stack of forms for our patrons to fill out. Throughout the hour patrons come into the room and I shoot digital head-shots of them and send them via email. I have a background in photography and retouching, so I am able to provide them with a professional image of themselves to use online. Everything from social media to email and even resumes go farther with such an image. This programs fills a need and provides teaching opportunities for those patrons who are underserved in this increasingly digital age.
