Dallas DAM Meetup

Join us for the Dallas DAM Meetup! We will meet at 7pm. The location is The Holy Grail Pub on Preston Rd in Plano. We are open to trying different locations in Dallas as we all live and work in different areas. Location suggestions are always welcome from group members!

To provide a little background on DAM, Digital asset management (DAM) is the process of arranging, describing, storing, and retrieving digital assets or files. This field continues to evolve and overlap with other disciplines in related fields, such as Content and Brand Management, Information Science, Information Technology, and Rights and Intellectual Property.

If you are going to be a few minutes late, please go ahead and join us. We totally understand that issues arise (working late, traffic, bad weather). Late arrivals are always welcome ;)

We look forward to meeting you and discussing DAM!

AEL Presents: The Extroverted Introvert: Public Speaking and Library Instruction for the New Librarian

AEL Presents: The Extroverted Introvert: Public Speaking and Library Instruction for the New Librarian

GLA’s Atlanta Emerging Librarians is proud to present our first formal presentation for 2015! We think that one of the most valuable skills a librarian can have is the ability to speak in front of an audience, whether it’s because they are presenting at a conference or work meeting, or teaching a library instruction class. Join us as we gain some valuable insights about public speaking and overcoming that fear of presenting. We will have a meet and greet with refreshments from 2:00 to 2:30 with presentations starting at 2:30.

Speakers:

Casey Long, User Education Librarian at Agnes Scott College, is noted for her success as an instructor, so most will probably be surprised to know that when she started working in Academic libraries at Georgia State University her supervisor had to push her into the classroom. She went on to win awards for excellence in teaching at Georgia State University and was even named as a Library Journal Mover and Shaker in 2009 for her teaching techniques. In this presentation Casey will share her tricks for overcoming stage fright in the classroom.

David Minchew is a relatively new librarian, having received his MLS from the University of North Texas in 2010. His current position as Reference and Instruction Librarian at Georgia Gwinnett College involves a great deal of classroom teaching. He thinks that’s fun. He has also spent the last 35 years climbing on stages all around the place with various rock bands and singers as a lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He thinks that’s fun too. Does this make you think; “So what? I’m a total introvert. I could never speak in public or get on a stage. Introverts like me can’t do that.” If so, David thinks that you are wrong. Did you know that the difference between introversion and extroversion has nothing to do with “shyness” but is really about how we process information? Did you know that almost all professional performers are introverts? Does this sound interesting? David hopes so, because that is what he wants to speak with you about, the myth that introverts can’t “bring it.”

If you have any questions, please contact us at atlantaemerginglibrarians@gmail.com. See you there!

Atlanta DAM Meetup

April is the month to discuss DAMs and startups! Here are things we'll talk about:
*Should every startup have a DAM? If so, what kind and to what purpose?
*Why are there so many startups that ARE DAMs or DAM-like? Is the market too crowded, or does the proliferation of DAM startups show healthy innovation?

We're going to attempt a second podcast! The first one was well reviewed on DAM News - http://tinyurl.com/mte3of3

Live podcast recording of Atlanta DAM Meetup!

As discussed at the last meet up, we're going to try to boost the ATL DAM meet up signal by recording conversation and releasing it as a podcast. The topic of conversation will be the 3-part Digital Asset Management News article series "What's Holding DAM back?"

http://digitalassetmanagementnews.org/opinion/whats-holding-dam-back-three-part-special-feature/

Read up, come on out, have a beer and laugh at us as we try to make audio sense of what we think about the direction of the industry in 2015. No vendors, no bullshit, loads of fun.

Update: Podcast went live March 25. Click here to listen to the podcast!
