Hope everyone gets some rest and relaxation.
After a little over two years, my time at the BC Libraries Cooperative (the co-op) working on the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) project will be coming to an end. As I prepare to leave, I thought I would reflect on my work while at the co-op. Continue reading A Reflection on Two Years as Content Coordinator
I have often thought that I have been fortunate to meet a lot of great people during my time in library school and since then in the working world. While I have thanked many of them in writing and in person, I wanted to reflect on how the combination of people and their support has gotten me to where I am in my professional life.

Just wanted to write a quick post to explain what is happening with presentations this and coming months.
Normally, after a presentation, I will put up a blog post with a copy of the slides and script. However, I’ve been asked to do the same presentation for different institutions, and there are so few differences, that rather than doing a full post, I’ve simply made note of the presentations and the differences below. I’ve also not added copies to SpeakerDeck.
While I update my presentations whenever I can, there really haven’t been any new discoveries or anything in the last year around writing accessible content. So I decided to base my slides on last year’s Making Accessible Content Easy and Part of Your Work presentation I did for the University of Pittsburgh.
- University of Pittsburgh March 2016 presentation. There was a technical issue causing the webinar to not be recorded, so they invited me to redo the presentation this year. I added the squirrel picture at the beginning, changed the wheelchair ramp picture, and took out a link that broke.
- JIBC March 2016 presentation. Changed all the references to and resources from University of Pittsburgh to JIBC, changed US to Canada statistics, and added the squirrel picture from the 2016 deck.
- FLW May 2016 presentation. Changed all the references to University of Pittsburgh to Florida Library related ones, changed resource links to general ones, and added the squirrel picture from the 2016 deck. Since this presentation hasn’t happened yet, I’ll update this post later if there are other changes.
I always enjoy reading the WordPress Annual Report. Unfortunately, since I didn’t go to Code4lib, no one tried to break my blog with a large number of views in a single day.
On the more interesting side, my top 5 posts are all from before 2015.
Check out the full report.
Love that WordPress will compile at stats report for you if you’re using their hosted version. Continue reading 2014 Blog Year Stats
I had meant to write this up earlier, but I have been overwhelmed with starting a new job and trying to wrangle a new space at home for my home office (which is still actually very much in progress). I also meant to post this after I wrote it 2 weeks ago, but had wanted to add some pictures and totally forgot about it. Continue reading Reflection: A Year as an Accessibility Librarian
So, after more than 3 years of blogging every week, I’ve decided to stop. Continue reading No More Weekly Post
While I’m sure it will continue to evolve, I thought now would be a good point to document the way the look of my presentation slides have changed over the past few years. Continue reading Evolving Look of My Presentation Slides
