CFP:

HTML5 and CSS3: Ready for Prime Time? Online Conference

Topic: HTML5 and CSS3

Deadline for Proposals: December 14, 2012

Conference Date: February 8, 2013

Location: Online

Form for Call for Proposals

HTML5 and CSS3 are two major web development standards today. Both have moved web authors into the present with options for incorporating more semantic elements, easier audio/video inclusion, APIs, and an ever-increasing formatting feature set. But how well supported are they today? Is it practical to use these standards with the browsers available today? Are there ways to incorporate parts of these standards or do web pages have to incorporate the entire standard? What are the “gotchas?”

This is the focus of Amigos’ February 8, 2013 online conference. We are looking for web developers that deal with library websites and have, either successfully or unsuccessfully, started incorporating HTML5 and/or CSS3 functionality. We’re searching for practical stories of what worked, what didn’t, and what you learned along the way. Do you use a HTML5/CSS3-compliant content management system? Or try to? Have you incorporated multimedia using HTML5? Are you using media queries? Have you started using more advanced selectors? We want to hear about everything related to HTML5 and CSS3.

The online conference will be held Friday, February 8th, 2013. We are looking for 45-minute sessions throughout the day. If you are interested, complete and submit our “Call for Proposals” form and we’ll be in touch. If you know someone who might be interested, please forward this invitation to them. We are looking for anyone who does web development, even indirectly, on your library’s website – whether they are library employees or not. All presenters will be comped for the conference!

The deadline for submitting proposals will be Friday, December 14, 2012.

FYI – We are fortunate to have Christopher Schmitt as our keynoter. Well-known for his work with the Web Standards Project , he heads the new media company and web design company called HeatVision.com and is the author of several books on standards-based web design.

If you have questions, please contact Christine Peterson, 800-843-8482 x2891.

New Book Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0

CHICAGO — In the three years since the publication of the best-selling “Information Literacy Meets Library 2.0,” the information environment has changed dramatically, becoming increasingly dominated by the social and the mobile.

The new book “Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0” picks up the conversation, asking the big questions facing those who teach information literacy: where have we come from, where are we now, and where are we going.

Presenting answers from a range of contributors, editors Peter Godwin and Jo Parker divide their book into three distinct sections. Part 1 explores the most recent trends in technology, consumption and literacy, while Part 2 is a resource bank of international case studies that demonstrate the key trends and their effect on information literacy, offering numerous innovative ideas that can be put into practice. Part 3 assesses the impact of these changes on librarians and what skills and knowledge they must acquire to evolve alongside their users.  Among the key topics explored are:

  • The evolution of “online” into the social Web as mainstream;
  • How social media tools are used in information literacy;
  • The impact of mobile devices on information literacy delivery;
  • Shifting literacies, such as metaliteracy, transliteracy and media literacy, and their effect on information literacy.

Anyone charged with developing and delivering information literacy programs, as well as library professionals concerned with library instruction and digital technologies, will find the information in this book stimulating and useful.

Godwin is academic liaison librarian at the University of Bedfordshire, UK and Parker is the head of information literacy at the Open University Library, UK.

How are libraries using both physical and virtual spaces to meet the needs and demands of library users?

Libraries are changing from spaces where we “marc and park” volumes of print material into more vibrant and vital organizations that focus on both internal and external access to services and information.

CHArt 28TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Consume: Respond – Digital Engagement with Art
**The CHArt committee has extended the deadline for proposals to June 20, 2012.

 

 

Thursday 15 – Friday 16 November 2012, Central London venue TBC

Since its foundation in 1985 CHArt has engaged in topical issues in
Digital Art History. This year CHArt is looking at how new developments in information and communications technology affect the ways in which we engage with art. New forms of digital display or emerging modes of viewing art may have profound effects on both our understanding of the artwork itself (the way we consume it) and our ability or appetite for describing, curating and managing it (how we respond to it).

CHArt invites papers that examine emerging practice and where it impacts upon digital art practice, research and curation. Areas for consideration include:

* Control of authorship, ownership and access
* Collaboration and the interdisciplinary break-down
* Participation, quick response and interaction
* Consumption, re-use and mashup
* Mobile technology, apps and education
* Connections between art, interface design, usability and user experience
* Globalisation, agility, dissemination and big data
* Liquidity and permeability of digital culture

Contributions are welcome from all sections of the CHArt community: art historians, artists, architects and architectural theorists and historians, philosophers, curators, conservators, scientists, cultural and media theorists, archivists, technologists and educationalists.

Submissions should be in the form of a 300-400 word synopsis of the proposed paper with brief biographical information (no more than 200 words) of presenter/s, and should be emailed tochart@kcl.ac.uk<mailto:chart@kcl.ac.uk > by Friday, June 1st
Wednesday, June 20th 2012. Please note that submissions exceeding the stated
word count will not be considered.

Postgraduate students are encouraged to submit a proposal. CHArt is able to offer assistance with the conference fees for up to four student delegates. Priority will be given to students whose papers are accepted for presentation. An application form and proof of university enrolment will be required. For further details about the Helene Roberts Bursary please email anna.bentkowska@kcl.ac.uk<mailto:anna.bentkowska@kcl.ac.uk >.
