Presentation Sign-up sheet: topics

Please write your name beside your chosen topic. If you prefer not to post your name online for privacy reasons, please feel free to use a pseudonym but please e-mail me at hgmorris@gmail so that I know who is doing what. If you would like to use powerpoint, I suggest that you send me your slides (recommended no more than 2) in advance so that I can create a slide deck for a group of presentations as the in-class time will be tight.

This is meant to be a BRIEF presentation of NO MORE than 5 minutes. Be prepared to provide a very quick overview of what your chosen topic is and why students should know about it, e.g. how the resource could be used in library or archival work - or how library or archival work could enhance the value of this resource. These topics are not meant to be exclusive; if you have an idea for another topic, it will be considered, but please consult with me first.
