Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, got a break, had a picnic, enjoyed the weather! ¬†In honor of the short week, this week’s This Week won’t tax your patience…

Reminder:  Upcoming Workshops and Student Opportunities

Last week we put up two very important posts, and we just want to be sure they don’t get lost in the end-of-the-fall-term-beginning-of-the-summer-term shuffle. ¬†The first is this notice about upcoming workshops, the first couple of which are THIS Thursday, May 31st. Do note that if you saw this information a long time ago, or even signed up a few months back, that this notice includes a room change. ¬†We’ll be in (the hopefully very cool) A540, the main library classroom. ¬†Hope to see you there!

Also, don’t forget about the Student Opportunities that we posted a few days back–and please tell your friends or students if you think they might be qualified and interested. ¬†As always, contact us with any questions!

Featured Work:  Class Projects Around CUNY

As the Fall term closed, student website projects from all over CUNY started to appear, and we thought this week we might highlight one. ¬†The Macaulay Seminar 2 Encyclopedia, showcases work done by MHC scholars in their second honors seminar, a course called “The Peopling of New York City.”¬† ¬†There are a number of fine examples in here of what can be done for a large-scale, student-directed final web-project for courses.

Have a look through around here and let us know if anything strikes you as something you might like to try on your own site or in your class–because we use the same digital platform (wordpress), what you see here can usually be done on the OpenLab, and we’d love to help.
