Next month, Ideum will be exhibiting, for the first time ever, at the American Library Association (ALA) Conference and Exhibition in Chicago, IL, June 23-26. We’re excited to bring our multitouch hardware and software to the thousands of information science professionals who attend ALA every year. We will be showing Omeka Everywhere, a touch table collection viewer and mobile app that allows collections be viewed and shared between platforms. Omeka Everywhere is a collaboration between the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, Ideum, and the University of Connecticut’s Digital Media Center. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
Please join us at booth number 5237, where Ideum team members will be happy to speak with you and demonstrate our Drafting Table and Duet Coffee Table, both with 49″ 4K Ultra HD displays, and examples of our library and museum collections-focused multitouch, multiuser software. Ideum tables have been purchased by academic, public, and special collections libraries all over the world for youth, student, and maker spaces, information and wayfinding stations, collaborative learning labs, and special exhibitions. Come see what we’re all about!
Next month, Ideum will be at InfoComm in Orlando, Florida from June 14-16. We will have a 43″ Duet Coffee Table in 3M’s booth, number 1467. This fall, Ideum will also be exhibiting at the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Annual Conference in San Jose, CA from October 21-24 in booth number 821.
