Call for Participation from the Texas Digital Library
GIS Day PechaKucha
Wednesday, January 27th, 2021 , 12-1:30 pm CST
GIS and geospatial data services are popping up in academic libraries and archives all over Texas! Is your institution part of the trend? We want to hear about it! Texas Digital Library’s GIS Interest Group is hosting a “PechaKucha Day” to share experiences, plans, and ideas about how libraries and archives are supporting and promoting GIS activities throughout the state.
Whether you’re already offering a full suite of GIS services, planning a one-off event, trying to get some maps online, or are just beginning to imagine how you might make use of GIS technologies, we want to hear from YOU. We invite you to share your work and ideas in what we hope will be an informal, fast-paced, and FUN virtual show-and-tell.
PechaKucha nights traditionally include presentations of 20 images, with 20 seconds commentary on each. In other words…presentations are meant to be LIGHTNING FAST and not very in-depth. Think “talk less, show more.” See some examples here:
Please use this form to submit your name, institution, and a brief description of what you’d like to share with us (by Wednesday 1/13.). Slides (20 images by 20 seconds each!) should be submitted no later than Wednesday 1/20.
Any questions should go to Jessie Zarazaga: firstname.lastname@example.org.
