The Next Generation of Accessible Materials: Born Accessible

Thursday May 15, 2014 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM EDT POY 218

There has been a fundamental shift in the way people with and without disabilities access information: eBooks, online courses, user-created materials, open educational resources, and the widespread use of graphics to convey information have created a “new normal” for how we teach and learn.

Cherie miller from Benetech/Bookshare will discuss Bookshare and the DIAGRAM Center and how they are exploring ways to use touch-screen technology, tactile graphics, and smart images to make images more interactive and dynamic

Take a moment to enjoy the new exhibit on the second floor. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Poynter Library’s acquisition of the John C. Briggs Collection of Ichthyology and Natural History.  A longtime faculty member at USFSP and former chair of the then-Department of Marine Science, Jack Briggs was a prolific scholar and avid collector of books related to the literature of the sea. His wife, Eila Hanni, was a faculty member who taught Economics on campus. Drs. Briggs and Hanni have retired, and now live in California. This signature collection includes many works published prior to 1800, and some dating to the mid-1500s.

DISPLAY: Children’s Books and Movies to celebrate Asian American Heritage Month

The Nelson Poynter Library announces the all new MyStudio Booth.

Located on the 2nd floor of the library, the MyStudio Booth is a simple one button video recording setup that will capture a video image of a person as well as a computer display such as a Powerpoint presentation, or web site. MyStudio can be used for practicing presentations for class, recording a class project, or conducting a mock job interview.

The MyStudio Booth is located outside the ID card office. Stop by today for a quick demo!
