the future of libraries in the digital age
Tagwhat is a new mobile application that tells "Great Stories at Places" in multimedia, based on location. So as you walk by a place a story told in video, audio, and images pops up that relates to that particular location. Tagwhat will be launching a publishing platform soon that will allow anyone to submit their own multimedia place-based stories easily on-line for free, with links to their own website, phone number, email address, or even a link to purchase tickets or make a donation.
This discussion will focus on Tagwhat's work with the Virginia Beach Public Library system to seed the Tagwhat network pre-launch with the Public Library's archived digital content. Learn how Tagwhat and the Public Library worked together to curate content and publish it on-location in places around Virginia Beach in various Tagwhat channels including Heritage, Food, Sports, Music, Movies, Art and more. Hear Tagwhat's plans for its publishing platform and how libraries, schools, and students can play a role in telling the stories of the places surrounding them in their own neighborhoods.

All general sessions are to be non-commercial. I've looked at your site and I love what you're doing, so there are a couple of options. One would be to become a supporter or sponsor of the conference and to co-present with a librarian or educator, another would be to run a commercial session.
Let's figure this out, since this looks fascinating.
