Firefox 2.0

November 13, 2007
5:00 pmto8:30 pm

Our friends at Philadelphia SLA will hold their 3rd TechTopics workshop on making the most of the Firefox browser. If the first two–on the 2.0 Office and Second Life–are any indication, this will be an excellent session. The workshop will be held in-person and via webcast.

The hands-on session will introduce student and professional librarians to Firefox and add-on’s in a computer lab setting. Included are automation add-on’s such as iMacros, Wikipedia Toolbar, Google Toolbar & LibX and organizational toolbars such as Del.icio.us & Zotero. Come find out how to use add-on’s to customize your browsing experience, automate tasks and get the most out the web. Session requires pre-registration and the pre-work of exporting your browser bookmarks to a file to work with in class. Christopher Curry is the Digital Archives Technician for the Drexel University Archives and Special Collections, and is close to completing his MS in Library Science at Drexel’s iSchool.

MLA members are eligible for the member rate. Registration deadline is Friday, November 9. Details at: http://units.sla.org/chapter/cphl/index.htm

    Do you have work to do on the web that includes repetitive or unwieldy processes?
    Would you like to be able to create a browser search toolbar from any search box on the web?
    Are you tired of looking for a web bookmark that is either on a different computer or filed in a counterintuitive place?
    Have you ever wanted to download every digital file on a page (images/pdf/et al.) with one click?
    Do you want your library’s resources to be at your users’ fingertips?
    Are you tired of needing to know how to write wiki code in order to collaborate with colleagues using MediaWiki (Wikipedia, et al.)?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, this session is for you!
