Library Mashups: Exploring New Ways to Deliver Library Data

Friday, June 25, 2010, 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Washington, D.C.

Learn about mashups, how they can be used, and consider examples from libraries around the world.  Discover what tools to use to mash up library data with content from the web to reach more patrons.  Examples include using maps to enhance library data, using Flickr for digital collections and creating library websites with data from several information sources.  Return to your institution with a list of goals to accomplish in your own library.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define what a mashup is and identify mashups on library sites and the web.
  • Find tools and APIs to gather data for their own library sites.
  • Leave with a list of goals to accomplish in your library or a website made up of mashups to build off of when you return to your library.

Presenter: Nicole Engard, Open Source Evangelist
