From B to W: Blogs to WikisHaving a presence on the internet today is like having an entry in the phone book 30 years ago. Museums, historical societies, and history writers need to be on the web. However, there are a dizzying array of options: blogs, ebooks, facebook, Twitter, websites, and wikis are just some of the choices. Andrea Lister will take you through the options. The growth of the digital market makes it essential for historical organizations and historical writers to understand their digital options while ensuring they do not alienate their existing audience. The workshop includes a handout.
Thursday morning (9:00 am - 12:00 pm)
Copyright for Print and DigitalWhat does using an image in your printed book, on your website, on facebook, in a tweet, and on your blog have in common? You just published it. The world is becoming increasingly litigious and the publishing landscape has changed with the advent of websites, PDFs, blogs, and ebooks. Historical societies and individuals need to understand the basics of copyright before they publish. The workshop includes a handout. Andrea Lister is not a copyright lawyer and this workshop should in no way be considered legal advice.
Thursday afternoon (1:00 pm – 4:00 pm)
Of course, you can stay for the whole conference and enjoy 4 days of field trips, presentations, workshops, book display with invited and local authors, and the awards banquet with community historians, academics and history enthusiasts.
