Managing Your Image Library

Thoughts On Presenting And Design

They have decent metadata support, but you’d be mixing all of these random images with your own library. Bento lets you create new databases, called libraries, easily and with a completely visual interface. As we design more and more slide decks, we inevitably create or consume an ever greater number of images, whether they’re photographs, icons, or whatever. The problem is, however, it becomes a problem keeping track of them all on your hard drive.

Traveling (and for free) in Time of COVID-19: Lucas County, OH Public Library Opens

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That's when the Lucas County Library in the Toledo, Ohio Metro area shut down because of COVID-19. The public library allows that to happen free.    It had been America's founding father Ben Franklin who established the prototype for the free public library. But the public library rides to the intellectual rescue. Yesterday, I visited Sweden.    That was via "The Truth Behind The Lie," a novel by Sara Lovestam.

Held up? Time to resource a presentation web library

The Presenter's Blog

You can use moments of unexpected downtime to go out there and build your library. Technology used well can bring extra impact to your presentation. Take a look at TED and you’ll find people using laptops, tablets, and phones in new ways to help them tell their stories. The trick to using technology is to reach beyond PowerPoint. Start by watching some TED talks and pick up ideas about how people put digital devices to dynamic use.

America's Public Libraries Go Proactive on Funding Pre-Recession - Model of Toledo Lucas County Library's Smart Public Relations

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That was the public library. Since that time - the 1730s - the public library has become a lot more than books. If the funding is less than needed, then the local library system can deteriorate. One of the best examples of a public library which knows how to tell its story is the Toledo, Ohio Lucas County Public Library.  You bet, the public library helps drive Toledo's economy.

Almost 590,000 Ohio Households Are W/O Internet Access - Catastrophe If Coronavirus Shuts Down Public Libraries

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

When school's out, public libraries through Ohio fill up with young people heading for the tables of computers hooked up to the internet.   If the spread of the coronavirus shuts down the public library system throughout the state, those young people will lose their connection to the internet. That will become painfully visible if the public libraries shutter as coronavirus goes on to peak in OH.

Libraries: Already rebranding as Third Places

Lots of Lives Were Saved at Canfield Branch of Youngstown/Mahoning Library 8/2/2018

The hours for blood donations for the Red Cross at the Canfield, Ohio branch of the Youngstown/Mahoning Library on August 2, 2018 were from 2 PM to 7 PM. But, given the long line of donors, likely those hours had been extended until the library closed at 9 PM. I wondered: Would the library allow the process to continue post-its official closing time?

Toddlers & Books: Miller Public Library, Hamden, Connecticut

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  That's what I have concluded from observing the brisk business at the check-out counter at the Miller Public Library, Hamden, Connecticut.  Print books still cast their spell on toddlers.    Pre-schoolers, with their mothers, grandmothers, and sometimes even fathers, check out about 7 print books at a time.    Those books are from the children's section, oversized with many images and the minimum of words.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Public libraries are all sorts of entities, ranging from where we can borrow books to where we can hang out as third places.

3-D Printing Tutorial at Mahoning County Public Library - Attendees Were All Baby Boomers

That's what I wondered this evening at the tutorial on 3-D Printing at the Poland branch of the Mahoning County public libraries. Is it that members of younger generations  already  knew a lot about 3-D Printing ? Or, are Baby Boomers determined to stay up-to-date with tech trends? I looked around the meeting room. And not one attendee appeared to be under 65. All of us had smartphones. All were up on the language of tech. And 3-D Printing was not entirely new to us.

But once those are understood, look for opportunities to add to your library of photos with ones you take at your company or in public.

Screaming Kids - Yes, Regulate Them Out Of Public Places

And that they are doing in restaurants, transportation facilities, and even libraries. Recently, I was in the Woods public library in Tucson, Arizona. I left the library.

We want regulations created about how long that screaming can go on before the child and caretaker have to be ejected from the scene.
