In this presentation, I introduced and soft-launched the Lloyd Sealy Library Digital Collections when it was still in “beta.” I walked the audience through a few of my favorite items (such as Gordon Hamby’s dashing mug shot and a police dog chase at the 1915 NYPD Annual Games). I also gave a behind-the-scenes tour of CollectiveAccess, our chosen CMS.

The METRO photographer also caught me looking excited as all get-out during the keynote or maybe lunch.
This was a super fun conference! See you at next year’s.
