SWON's Picture Book Read-In is a program for collection development staff, children's librarians, teachers, and childcare workers, in short, anyone who selects and/or reads books for children. We have thousands of recent titles (usually from the last two years) loaned to us for this event from six leading public library systems. Each attendee receives a printed guide listing all of the books. The day includes time for selecting and binge-reading picture books, discussing possible story time options with your peers and a presentation.

Telling A People's Story: African-American Children's Illustrated Literature
This first-of-its-kind museum exhibition, featuring original art by African-American illustrators, looks at African-American cultural and historical identity through the lens of children's picture books. It is now a traveling panel exhibition made available for public schools, libraries, and universities and colleges. 

Jason Shaiman is the Curator of Exhibitions at the Miami University Art Museum in Oxford, Ohio. Prior to his arrival at MUAm in August 2010, he served as the Chief Curator of Exhibitions at the University of South Carolina’s McKissick Museum. Shaiman received his BA in Art History from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and an MA in Art History and a Degree in Museum Studies from the University of South Carolina. He has curated more than 40 exhibitions, with Telling A People's Story being his most important accomplishment.

Data Visualization: Basics & Tools

 

 

 

The Cincinnati Chapter of the Special Libraries Association announces the next workshop in our new “Data Skills” series.  These hands-on technical workshops aim to help Information professionals, archivists, librarians & others gain exposure to technologies in data manipulation, analysis & visualization.  Beginners are welcome – no prior experience is required!   

Data Visualization combines both art & design with math & science in order to present complex data in an easily-digestible graphic. This workshop introduces the fundamental principles and concepts that make up an effective datavisualization. These include: choosing the appropriate chart type, design best practices, understanding color theory, and basic data types. Participants will work with data these visualization principles and data visualization software tools through hands-on and group exercises. Please bring your own laptop for the hands-on exercises.
