Join the ADSL Hangout this Thursday!

Looking for a great way to stay involved in ARLIS/NA and ADSL between conferences? Join us this Thursday, March 30th at 3pm EST/12pm PST for our first Art & Design School Library Division Hangout!

For this initial Hangout, we’re looking for topics and potential contributors for future ADSL discussions, events, and collaborations. If you have an idea for a conference panel or other presentation, or if you just want to listen in, this will be a chance to brainstorm and vote on what you want to see ADSL do in the coming year.

We hope to use Hangouts as a way to gather and discuss throughout the year, so this first meeting is a great no-pressure situation to test out the tech and get yourself familiar with the new Google Hangouts (through YouTube). The first part of the discussion will be orienting people to the tools available, so don’t worry if you’ve never done this before!

Just click this link when it’s time to join us Thursday March 30th — it’s that simple! https://hangouts.google.com/hangouts/_/q7jmtoqvrjfjxptudhtbkbjewue(Tip: paste the link right into a calendar appointment so you don’t have to hunt for this e-mail later.)

How it works:
We’ll all gather in a Hangout and discuss our ideas. If multiple people want to talk at once, we can use the text chat sidebar.  When someone wants to present an idea to the group we can turn Presenter status over to you, and everyone will see either your face or a screen share.  The resulting discussion will be captured as a YouTube video which won’t be publicly searchable, but will be shareable with a link.

Can’t make it to the Hangout?
If you have any questions or concerns about this Hangout, or have suggestions for future ADSL events, you can let the moderators know directly. We’ll send a poll after the Hangout to collect more votes on topics, too.

We look forward to seeing you all then!
