Interviews conducted during the Spring 2011 CNI Membership Meeting have been published by EDUCAUSE:
The podcasts include a conversation with plenary speaker Todd Presner, founder and director of HyperCities (a GIS research and education platform built on the Google Maps and Google Earth APIs), as well as an interview with UCSD University Librarian Brian Schottlaender on collaboration and the future of university libraries. EDUCAUSE producer Gerry Bayne spent time with a few other presenters and attendees at CNI’s spring meeting, including:
• Brian Owen (Simon Frasier Univ.), discussing the Public Knowledge Project
• Thomas Hickerson and Shawna Sadler on the Univ. of Calgary’s Taylor Family Digital Library, a converged library, archive, art and publishing facility
• Sayeed Choudhury (Johns Hopkins Univ.) with a Data Conservancy Update
• Robert Seal (Loyola Univ.) reflects on three years of an information commons Library-ITS partnership
These recordings are designed to function as an extension of the meeting, complementing the standard program, and providing an opportunity for the broader CNI community to hear from some of our key presenters and attendees.
The meeting was held April 4-5, 2011 in San Diego, CA. Thanks to all who attended and presented!
