Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods including workshops, lectures, practical projects, seminars, work based simulations, industry case studies, field work and work based learning. All courses combine theory with practical application, and contain a core curriculum which is enhanced and strengthened by various other areas such as; tourism organisations, regulations, motivations and innovations. Assessments will cover individual and group practical sessions, presentations, written assignments, learning logs and evaluations. On a personal level I am good at listening, and understanding of other people’s needs, as well as being responsible, enthusiastic, friendly, patient and helpful. My time at college was enjoyable and informative, I studied Tourism at A level, and was taught by teachers who really knew what they were talking about. During my time at college I got a part time job with a local firm of travel agents, and really enjoyed my work. Your university is right where it’s happening, and your courses are well recognised throughout the industry for producing graduates with exceptional vocational skills. CAPTAIN JOSE DE URRUTIA DISCOVERED BANDERA PASS IN 1739 WHILE CAMPAIGNING AGAINST THE APACHES WHO HAD BEEN THREATENING SPANISH SETTLEMENTS AT san antonio de BEXAR. THE EARLIEST MAP SHOWING BANDERA AS A PLACE IS AN ANONYMOUS ONE, DATED AROUND 1815 TO 1819, THAT INDICATES AN APACHE VILLAGE JUST OF NORTH OF a€?PUERTA DE LA BANDERA.a€? BANDERA PASS IS INDICATED AS THE TERMINAL POINT OF AN OLD COMANCHE TRAIL FROM NACOGDOCHES. Lehman reported that he was captured by the apache indians in 1870 when he was 11 years old and again later by the comanche indians. Lehman was later taken by the comanches and adopted into their tribe and remained with the comanches until the United states government put them on a reservation in oklahoma. When Lehman was with the Apache tribe, he heard the apaches talk about a battle in 1732 at Bandera Pass. Lehman told of a battle at bandera pass in 1841 which was also recorded in Wikipedia (the online encyclopediC) a€?battle of Bandera Passa€?.
Lehman reported that after the battle with the Texas Rangers the comanches named the town of bandera. The town of bandera, Texas was founded in 1853 by Charles De Montel, john james and John Herndon. In 1856 after Bandera County was created, the first commissioners court was held on January 26th. John James was born in 1819 in Gorleston Suffolk, England while his parents were visiting England.
In 1851 James married Annie Milby, daughter of William Polk MILBY of Maryland, who came to indianola, texas in 1840. On August 27, 1839, Herndon married Barbara Makall Wilkinson Calvit, the only daughter of Alexander Calvit, and the heir to the Calvit sugar plantation in Brazoria County, texas. It is believed that montel and james recruited Herndon to help finance the development of the town of Bandera. In 1852, a venture into the Texas hill country brought explorer and surveyor Charles de montel to an area now called bandera county.

Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this well known program by David Levy on the timely topic of Mindful Tech. This two part, 90 minutes each, webinars series will introduce participants to some of the central insights of the work Levy has been doing over the past decade and more. I’ve taught and written quite a bit about a favorite methodology of mine called design thinking. I’ll talk a little more about how you could use design thinking, but for those of you who might not be familiar with this process, here are the basics. Group findings into categories that represent faculty “problems” and select those to develop further. Similarly, if you want to try providing a new service like Virtual Reality, gathering a group of the faculty and students who will be most likely using this service and going through this activity would provide valuable input and will ensure that whatever you implement will be used and useful as opposed to trying to guess what it is they want. You can even try this approach with colleagues as a way of introducing them to a new process or cool gadget by taking the anxiety out of the equation. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is a leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for higher education.
Established in 1966, the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) is the leading organization reaching out across types of libraries to provide education and services for a broad membership of nearly 2,700 systems librarians, library technologists, library administrators, library schools, vendors, and many others interested in leading edge technology and applications for librarians and information providers.

Digital Privacy and Security: Keeping You And Your Library Safe and Secure In A Post-Snowden World. Learn strategies on how to make you, your librarians and your patrons more secure & private in a world of ubiquitous digital surveillance and criminal hacking. In our third episode of Begin Transmission, we’re lucky enough to sit down with none other than Cinthya Ippoliti. Technology envelops every aspect of librarianship, so it is important to keep up with new technology tools and find ways to use them to improve services and better help patrons. Lola Bradley is a Public Services Librarian at the University of South Carolina Upstate Library. Breanne Kirsch is a Public Services Librarian at the University of South Carolina Upstate Library. Jonathan Kirsch is the Head Librarian at the Pacolet Library Branch of the Spartanburg County Public Libraries. Thomas Lide is the Learning Engagement Librarian at Richland Library, Columbia South Carolina. The LITA Forum is a highly regarded annual event for those involved in new and leading edge technologies in the library and information technology field.
The 2016 LITA Forum Committee seeks proposals for the 19th Annual Forum of the Library Information and Technology Association in Fort Worth Texas, November 17-20, 2016 at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel. The Forum Committee welcomes proposals for full-day pre-conferences, concurrent sessions, or poster sessions related to all types of libraries: public, school, academic, government, special, and corporate. Learn about the open source digital repository, Islandora, from experts, in this afternoon of diving into the framework. This Islandora for Managers workshop will empower participants to manage digital content in an open source, standards-based, and interoperable repository framework. Stephen Perkins, an official agent and consultant of discoverygarden, is Managing Member of Infoset Digital Publishing. After spending a good amount of time playing with RDF technologies, reading authoritative literature, and engaging with other linked data professionals and enthusiasts, I have come to the conclusion that linked data, as with any other technology, isn’t perfect. Over the past few years I have dedicated a fair amount of research time developing my knowledge of linked data.
Don’t miss these amazing speakers at this important LITA preconference to the ALA Annual 2016 conference in Orlando FL. Jessamyn has given presentations, workshops, keynotes and all-day sessions on technology and library topics across North America and Australia. Blake has presented widely at professional conferences talking about open source systems, Drupal, WordPress and IT Security For Libraries.

After several months of training attempts I took a step back after finding inspiration in the bible. In order to construct a pyramid for the Reference Services department, we held a brainstorming session where I asked my co-workers what they feel they need to know to work at the reference desk, followed by what they want to learn.
I have failed at grant writing many times because I started writing a list of “toys” I wanted.  I would begin browsing stores online and pictured awesome technology I wanted. To remove the daunting feeling you may have of writing a proposal, find community partners or colleagues that can assist in making the process enjoyable.  For example, a library can participate in grant proposals spawned by others. Ensure that outcomes and objectives are SMART, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound.  How will you know if the project is succeeding or has been a success? You will examine areas such as niche markets and emerging forms of tourism, as well as looking at the wider social and economic issues.
In the UK it is estimated that approximately 1.8 - 2 million people, (roughly 6-7% of the workforce) are employed directly in tourism and related service industries.
This initial introduction will set the scene for the course and introduce you to the tourism phenomenon through the core concepts involved.
It is a hands on course where you'll go on regular fieldtrips and visits to tourism service providers, such as airports, stately homes and local tourism hotspots. Combined these will help you to gain an understanding of the operation of the private and public sectors and the interactions between them with respect to tourism. You can use this example to gain an idea of how to structure and put together your own one. I have chosen to study travel and tourism because it’s dynamic, wide-ranging and fast-growing, and offers a huge variety of employment opportunities for young people. My ambition now is to gain a systematic understanding of the theoretical knowledge and technological skills essential for career progression within the many varied sectors of the travel and tourism industry. To keep up to date with the sector I take a keen interest in industry events, regularly attend conferences and seminars and read trade magazines.
The course covered a wide range of tourism and travel aspects, and also gave me a introduction to business knowledge.
I was involved in promotions, marketing campaigns, and maximising sales and customer holiday experience by suggesting excursions, upgrades etc. I feel your programmes will provide me with an appropriate balance of knowledge and skills to pursue a career in the industry at both entry and management level, home or abroad. The popular interactive program will include exercises and participation now re-packaged into a 2 part webinar format. It applies to virtually any service design context, and it even mirrors the new Framework for Information Literacy beautifully! Design thinking is a creative process focused on the generation of solutions stemming from end user needs and wants. Implement service prototypes, solicit feedback, and measure their impact in preparation for refining them and scaling up. The point of these activities is not to worry about the tool itself, but rather how it will be utilized and it allows you to step outside of the process of coming up with something from nothing because you are dealing with user issues and challenges which provide the jumping off point for your solutions. You can even use these activities as a form of active learning or to design a lesson plan or program itself. If they are not expected to act as “experts” but rather users, it might be far easier to get some buy-in for your idea and will allow them to learn more as they go, just as you will. The winning manuscript will be published in Information Technology and Libraries (ITAL), LITA’s open access, peer reviewed journal, and the winner will receive $1,000 and a certificate of merit.
Offering SaaS products for the management and discovery of the full spectrum of library and scholarly materials, as well as mobile campus solutions driving student engagement and success, Ex Libris serves thousands of customers in 90 countries.
In this one hour webinar, Nima and Alison from Library Freedom Project will help shine some light on email issues and the tools you can use to make this communication more confidential.
Join Alison and Nima from the Library Freedom Project in this one hour webinar to learn about the Tor network, running the Tor browser and a Relay, and other basic services to help your patrons have enhanced browsing privacy in the library and beyond. Jessamyn and Blake will teach tools that keep your data safe inside of the library and out – how to secure your library network environment, website, and public PCs, as well as tools and tips you can teach to patrons in computer classes and one-on-one tech sessions. Cinthya is a LITA Blogger and Associate Dean for Research and Learning Services at Oklahoma State University. This hands-on, interactive preconference will teach six to eight technology tools in detail and show attendees the resources to find out about 50 free technology tools that can be used in all libraries. Her professional interests include instructional design, educational technology, and information literacy for all ages. She is the Coordinator of Emerging Technologies at Upstate and the founder and current Co-Chair of LITA’s Game Making Interest Group. His professional interests include emerging technology, digital collections, e-books, publishing, and programming for libraries.
Please send your proposal submissions here by May 13, 2016, and join your colleagues in Fort Worth Texas. Collaborative and interactive concurrent sessions, such as panel discussions or short talks followed by open moderated discussions, are especially welcomed.
Presenters are expected to register and participate in the Forum as attendees; a discounted registration rate will be offered.
Islandora combines Drupal, Fedora Commons and Solr software together with additional open source applications.
Since 2011, Erin’s been involved in the Islandora project; a community supported framework of open source technologies for digital repositories.
Infoset provides content and technology solutions for institutions, publishers, and businesses.
Joining me for today’s discussion is none other than Brianna Marshall, our fearless leader here at the LITA Blog. Modularity is a huge advantage RDF modeling has over modeling in other technologies such as XML, relational databases, etc.
During this time I have formed some thoughts for moving forward with linked data in the LAM community. Linked data is not inherently “open”, meaning data providers have to make the effort to put the “open” in Linked Open Data.
It’s not perfect, but it is an upgrade to existing technologies and will help the LAM community promote open and shared data. She studies and writes about the digital divide and solves technology problems for schools and libraries.
She has been speaking and writing on the intersection of libraries and technology for over a decade. It was published as part of LITA’s Tech Set series back in 2010 and acts as a no-nonsense guide to technology training for librarians. In her chapter on planning, Houghton discusses the idea of developing a Technology Needs Pyramid similar to the Maslow Hierarchy of Needs (originally proposed by Aaron Schmidt on the Walking Paper blog).
What better way to represent our profession than to become the researcher for a grant group.  Research is our secret weapon.
Students are encouraged to develop useful transferable skills that can be used in the various contexts to which you will be exposed throughout your academic study and any future job roles. You are strongly advised not to copy or plagiarise it, instead use it as a resource to inspire your own creative writing. There is an ever increasing range of job opportunities and career prospects for well qualified and motivated people, and this degree course is a starting point for my career in travel and tourism.
I am determined to get the best possible degree classification as this will help me stand out from the crowd and also ensure that employers look favourably at me. I also possess extensive knowledge of other countries and their transport systems, accommodation options and tourist attractions.
What I really liked about it was that it was part academic and part work experience, which I felt gave me a good rounded knowledge of the travel and tourism industry. This experience has been invaluable to me as I firmly believe that to stand out from the crowd you have to go beyond simple academics. On a recent visit to your campus I found it to be in beautiful surroundings, where the lecturers appeared to be very supportive of students and had a close personal relationship with them. Click image to get bigger picture, and if you find Jobs Migration For Development interesting, you might pin it to Pinterest. For young employees, this means continuously being involved in projects that challenge your skills and allow you to develop professionally. Our personal development planning takes into account factors like your aspirations and development.

Both parts will be fully recorded for participants to return to, or to work with varying schedules. Levy will demonstrate this work by giving participants exercises they can do, both during the online program and between the sessions. For more than a decade, he has been exploring, via research and teaching, how we can establish a more balanced relationship with our digital devices and apps. At OSU, we’ve used it from everything to helping us re-design our instruction program to helping us work through a recent data needs assessment project. This is a conversation you might already have with library administration ahead of your project to ensure that it is fully supported before you begin to design it or you can use this process as a way to request support for a new initiative.
The important element is getting user feedback at the beginning of the process so that you’re working with real needs. For more information about Ex Libris, see our website, and join us on Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Twitter. They will cover the issues with email, and teach about how to use GPG to encrypt emails and keep them safe. We’ll tackle security myths, passwords, tracking, malware, and more, covering a range of tools from basic to advanced, making this session ideal for any library staff.
We deliberately seek and strongly encourage submissions from underrepresented groups, such as women, people of color, the LGBT community and people with disabilities. The committee particularly invites submissions from first time presenters, library school students, and individuals from diverse backgrounds. The framework delivers easy-to-configure tools to expose and preserve all types of digital content.
In that time, Erin’s been involved in more than 40 different Islandora projects ranging from consulting, custom development, and data migrations. Stephen has more than 20 years experience directing small-to-medium scale IT projects, specializing in digital asset management solutions for the Humanities.
First, you’re not bound to a single vocabulary, such as Dublin Core, meaning you can describe a single resource using multiple descriptive standards (Dublin Core, MODS, Bibframe). The ability to link data is great for the LAM community, because we’re able to link our respective institutions’ data together without the need for cross-referencing.
URIs help us uniquely identify every resource we describe, making it possible to link resources together. To maximize linked data, and to follow the “open” movement in libraries, I feel there needs to be an emphasis on data providers publishing completely open and accessible data, regardless of format and publishing strategy. Jessamyn has been speaking on the intersection of libraries, technology and politics since 2003.
Before I started my current position, implementing a technology training model seemed easy enough, but I’ve found that there are many layers, including (but certainly not limited to) things like curriculum development, scheduling, learning styles, generational differences, staff buy-in, and assessment.
Necessary skills and competencies make up the base and more idealistic areas of interest are at the top. The results were a mix of topics (things like data visualization and digital mapping) paired with specific software (Outlook, Excel, Photoshop). I hope that this pyramid will act as a guideline for our department, but more than anything it will act as a guide for me going forward. Gaining a recognised qualification will open the door to a variety of roles within the travel sector, in areas like airlines, hotels, tour operators, travel agencies, tourist boards and tourist attractions. At college I was heavily involved in the mentoring scheme, which was a programme that helped to empower students to sort out their problems.
This ongoing process is a partnership between you and your manager.We want to improve your prospectsWith nearly 13,000 projects at any given time, COWI depends on successful project management. Design thinking is championed by IDEO CEO Tim Brown and is an integral part of the curriculum at the Stanford D School.
Is it helpful to first show a rough idea in an informal setting or will you learn the most from seeing your prototype in action?
Identify potential partners both internal and external who might be involved if they have not already been part of the original planning process. The Islandora for Managers workshop will provide an overview of the Islandora software and open source community.
He has extensive experience in architecting solutions for cultural heritage institutions, reference publishers, and documentary editing projects. Eventually, when there’s enough linked data in the LAM community, it will be a way for us to link our data together across institutions, forming a web of knowledge.
However, RDF and linked data has been around for a while (a public draft of RDF was presented in 1997, seen here). As always, I’d like to hear your thoughts, and please feel free to reach out to me in the comments below or through twitter. She is the author of Without a Net: Librarians Bridging the Digital Divide, and has written the Practical Technology column for Computers in Libraries magazine since 2008.
He is currently the Senior Systems Administrator for LYRASIS Technology Services where he manages the servers and infrastructure that support their products and services.
It’s a prickly pear and one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced as a professional librarian.
Most of my research has pointed me towards creating a list of competencies, but the pyramid was much more appealing to a visual thinker like me. I’ve already printed it and pinned it to my bulletin board as a friendly daily reminder of what my department needs and what they’re curious about. We sign posted them in the right direction to places where they could get the help that they needed.
Highly skilled specialists need to be matched with equally competent project managers to secure value creation for our customers and the societies we work in.
Determine what kind of feedback you are looking for: Do you want to get feedback on the first impression of your idea? However, creating a URI for every resource and maintaining stables URIs (which I think will be a requirement if we’re going to pull this off) can be cumbersome for a data provider, as well as rather costly. As such, the larger linked data and semantic web community has formed established best practices for creating RDF data models and linked data. While I’d like to recommend the Technology Needs Pyramid to everyone, I don’t have the results just yet! Participants can choose to follow along using a virtual machine or an online Islandora sandbox. Well, you can create a more specific “date” term and assign it as a sub-property of DC:date. Even though both institutions are pulling from the same vocabularies, they’re using different terms. In order to seamlessly integrate into the larger community we will need to adopt and adhere to these best practices. ELY SHOWS THE OLD COMANCHE TRAIL INTERSECTING THE a€?TRAIL TO MISSION SAN SABAa€? BUT DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY SHOW THE PASS. The academy trains participants in how to use internal systems and tools to support cross-border planning and distributed work. It’s important to make this as authentic an experience as possible so that you can get realistic information as opposed to discussing a hypothetical situation in which anything works because you haven’t actually tried it.
In the meantime I can tell you that whether it’s a list, graphic, or narrative; collecting (and demanding) feedback from your colleagues is vital. This coursework gives attendees new competencies and allows them to establish a wide-reaching network across the organisation. This means that not only can you describe resources, you can describe existing and new vocabularies, as well as create complex versioning data for vocabularies and controlled terms (see this ASIST webinar). I still see consortia such as the Open Archives Initiative forming their own requirements for data sharing.
Finally, with SPARQL and reasoning, you can perform metadata cross-walking from one vocabulary to another without the need for technologies such as XSLT. This can be seen now in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) and Europeana data models (here and here, respectively).
