Presentation 1
Snapshot - Digital Librarians on the Software Developer Continuum
As digital librarians, we fall somewhere on the continuum between "software developer" and "software user." How does viewing ourselves as co-creators rather than consumers of software affect our perceptions of our abilities and responsibilities when working with software, and what are the implications for participation in open-source software communities?
Presenter: Robin Dean

Presentation 2
Snapshot - Building with Jekyll: Simple and Sustainable Web Infrastructure
Static website generators, such as Jekyll, have exploded as a viable alternative to traditional CMS, offering speed and security at a fraction of the server overhead. Jekyll provides a robust and efficient framework for developing an easy to maintain, yet flexible and unique front end for our digital collections.
Presenters: Evan Williamson, Devin Becker

Presentation 3
Linked data, geographical search, and faceting: Extending Blacklight and VIVO to supporting curation and discovery of climate change science content
The New York Climate Change Science Clearinghouse (NYCCSC) project aims to provide a central portal for policy makers to access data and information relevant to climate change adaptation and mitigation in New York State. This project utilizes semantic technologies for linking climate change concepts and content.
Presenter: Huda Khan

Presenters: Sarah Severson
