CIG Meeting Summary May 8, 2010

By , May 20, 2010

The D-OGS Computer Interest Group (CIG) met Saturday, May 8 in the Chapel Hill Public Library and our featured speaker was Luba lsawczyn, the reference librarian. She demonstrated the features that are available to the home user who has a library card in the Orange or Durham County libraries. NC Live and the use of Heritage Quest may help you find things that are not generally available on the web. At least it’s worth taking a look at these sites as part of your research plan.

We talked a lot about a variety of subjects, but as the web connection at the library was unavailable, we were not able to visit the web sites on the agenda. They will be saved for the next meeting or two.

The June meeting will consist of the various email programs we all use, and how to archive emails as well as other files so that they are easily retrievable and more importantly, safe. This should be a topic that is good for everyone.
