Next ARLD Meeting 7/25/08

Please join the Academic Research Libraries Division (ARLD), the MD chapter of ACRL, on Friday, July 25, from 1-3pm at the Albert S. Cook Library, Room 13,  at Towson University.  Meet and greet colleagues, share concerns, develop program ideas and enjoy the captivate(ing) demonstration!  We’d love to see you in person but we are  arranging teleconferencing from other libraries so stay tuned and don’t let the distance keep you away!

David Dahl, Towson’s new Emerging Technologies Librarian will give the presentation:

Title: Adobe Captivate, or, Powerpoint is SOOO Last Year

“Adobe® Captivate® 3 software enables anyone to rapidly create powerful and engaging simulations, scenario-based training, and robust quizzes without programming knowledge or multimedia skills” (www.adobe.com/products/captivate).  How can libraries benefit from Captivate?  What must be considered when creating a Captivate project?  This presentation will detail current and potential uses of Captivate as well as strategies for creating a successful project.

All are welcome!  Drinks and snacks provided.

Parking permits will be provided for the Towsontown Garage on campus – please email Patty MacDonald for a parking pass pmacdonald@towson.edu.
