Sir Sanford Fleming college
Every year for the past few years, I have done a guest lecture for the Preservation of Books, Photos and Archival Materials course (SCIE0047) in Fleming College’s Cultural Heritage Conservation and Management program, (session instructor Laura Cunningham). The last time I taught it was on June 16, 2017.
OLA Superconference 2017
I did an OLITA Lightning Talk on how to 3D-print Braille signage for your library.
For a while, I was writing reviews of books and websites for various library publicaitons. While I have not done so for a while, I may return to the practice, which I find very useful for professional developement. Here are some of the ones I have published.
