All - are we going to do a program in New Orleans? Scottsdale will be nearly done with our LSTA grant so I'd be happy to sign up for a panel discussion if we're going to put one on. We have to submit by the end of the month. -- Aimee
Aimee, could you explain what your LSTA project was? I emailed Cody, the current IG chair, about the possible programming idea for New Orleans a while ago but didn't hear back. I also volunteered to be the next IG chair but I am not sure if that begins this year or next year.
Other programming ideas discussed at the IG meeting at D.C was to do a series of presentation about tools/methods to make a mobile library site from the simplest to the more sophisticated. Could cover basics of webkit CSS, some frameworks like JQtouch or iUi, other tools like Dashcode and Phonegap which Jim showed in his short presentation at the IG group meeting.
Please chime in and add more ideas!
Hi Bohyun - we have $18,500 to create a mobile website. Most of that money is going to a consultant to help us determine our audience for the site and what they want/need from us there. We really want the site to fit a niche for the community and not be just like every other library website. We will also hold some money back for app development of some sort, depending on what the market research tells us. We're working on hiring the consultant now. At conference I would be happy to talk about the market research and how it played into our site development. - Aimee
Hi Bohyun - I forgot about the deadline as well. I'm sure I'll have something to present on at Midwinter so I'm happy to do that. -- Aimee
If you're serious about making it work, submit your proposal(s)

Bohyun and all you MC-IGers -
hope I didn't overstep but I went ahead and submitted a program proposal form. We had SO MUCH good stuff at our last meeting that I think if we just presented that the program would be a hit. Just think of what we'll have to show a year from now! I'm happy to put the work in to assemble a panel if we need to go outside of our little group. Here's what I put in for the placeholder. -- Aimee
