(Please note that the time-frame for submissions is short--due October


The Technology Petting Zoo, brought to you by OLA's Public Library
Division, is a day set aside for all librarians (even technophobes!) to
explore innovative technologies and their use in the public library


The Public Library Division Board is seeking short presentations (20-45
minutes) to introduce new devices and technologies and demonstrate how
they can be used in the library setting.  Hands-on time with electronic
devices like flip cameras, gaming systems, ipods, and netbooks will be
offered in the afternoon.  


The Technology Petting Zoo will be held Friday, November 13th, 2009 at
the Tualatin Public Library.

 Proposal Submission Deadline: Monday, October 5th. Informal proposals
are acceptable.


Wild ideas are welcome (as are slightly more boring ones). Please use
your imagination! We would love to hear your ideas, even if they are not
completely "fleshed out" to start with. Library School students are
encouraged to submit proposals. 


Some potential presentation topics:

Youtube Book Reviews

Loaning laptops in  the library

Library catalogs for mobile devices

Netbooks and the future of print

"Friending" the Library


User generated reviews in the catalog

Circulating xbox, ps2 and wii games 

Downloadable books, audio books, videos


Submit proposals to Su Ikeda: opalsu at gmail.com or email if you have

See you at the Zoo!
