----DIGITAL LITERARY MAPS AGENDA ----
1. Technical check-in for participants, Jay Peterson, Consultant, Iowa Library Services/State Library
2. Introduction, Sharon Shaloo, Massachusetts CFB
3. Presentations by Curtis Rogers from South Carolina State Library; Ellen Bosman from New Mexico: new or established maps; how they were conceptualized; selection criteria; some cautionary tales
4. Big Picture Questions for Planning: developing a map that tells our state's story; getting funded; estimating staff or volunteer time
5. Thoughts for further webinars: software and cloud design solutions; how we highlight other mapping initiatives in our states; whether to launch a national site linking to all of us..
In case you missed it, here is the link to Sharon Shaloo's spreadsheet of links to literary maps, mostly interactive, in the US. It would be great if everyone could take a look at some of these before the 6th, and of course please let Sharon know of others that should be added.
Google Drive Document: <https://docs.google.com/a/simmons.edu/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aom5eB4TCJcTdExnNUdGOGQ1TnUxUXhtUDIzSmFtRFE&usp=sharing>
You'll see a link on the spreadsheet to an article, "Literary Mapping: Don't Reinvent the Wheel," which is thought-provoking and will give an overview of the technical issues facing us.
We look forward to seeing you next Friday, December 6th 11:00 AM CST!
