Library Mashups
Nicole C. Engard, editor of "Library Mashups: Exploring new ways to deliver library data" (http://mashups.web2learning.net), will explain
what mashups are, how they can be used and share examples from libraries around the world.

In the first half of this workshop, attendees will learn about some of the tools they can use to mash up library data with content from the web to reach more patrons. Examples include using maps to enhance library data, using Flickr for digital collections and creating library websites with data from several information sources.

After learning the basics and seeing examples from other libraries around the world, attendees will have a chance to practice pulling data from several sources on the web into a website.

After attending this talk, librarians will be able to:
• Define what a mashup is and identify mashups on library sites and the web.
• Find tools and APIs to gather data for their own library sites
• Pull data from other sites into a test website
