Presented by Mike Waugh, Library Services Platform Administrator

Git was built for programmers to keep track of changes to their code. GitHub was built for allowing programmers to share their code. But anybody can use this powerful and popular combo of software and platform, for writing, for building websites, and for collaboration. This presentation will explain the basics of using Git and GitHub, for an audience of non-programmers, using examples from libraries.

Presented by Angel Truesdale, Business and Social Sciences Librarian at UNC-Charlotte

As libraries continue to work online or in a hybrid format, the need for well-designed and effectively facilitated meetings rises. Disorganized or poorly run Zoom meetings can lead to wasted time and frustrated teams. Attendees will learn techniques they can use immediately to plan for a meeting and develop a participatory environment where all attendees are proposing ideas and contributing to the meeting's success.

If you'd like to talk with CARLI staff and your CARLI library colleagues about Alma Fulfillment and Automated Fulfillment Network workflows, known issues, and Q & A, join us online on Friday, 10/30 from 2-3:30pm central.

Debbie Campbell from the CARLI Office will be online to work with your questions and to facilitate the discussion.

This session will be recorded for CARLI staff use; since Fulfillment involves patron data, the CARLI office will evaluate if it is fitting and valuable to post segments of the session for later review.

Connection information will be sent to registrants on 10/29.

Additional sessions of "Let's talk about Fulfillment (I mean Alma, not life's purpose)" are scheduled/have occurred.
