Speaking, workshops, or consulting

I travel and speak frequently on a variety of topics, often having to do with metadata, linked data, and digital library issues.  Additionally, as the creator of MarcEdit, occasionally get inquires related to hosting workshops or training related to MarcEdit or metadata workflows.  If you have a specific inquiry related to speaking, workshops, or consulting, please feel free to contact me.

Brief Bio:

REESET-XPS - WIN_20141219_142941

Terry Reese works at The Ohio State University Libraries as the Head of Digital Initiatives.  His primary research interest tend to focus around the development of services and infrastructure to support large scale data projects and preservation.  Terry has been an active researcher and participant in the library development community since 1999, working on a wide range of development and research projects.  His unwavering interest in issues surrounding the continuing evolution of library metadata remains a common thread throughout his research, and informs his work as the author and creator of MarcEdit — a tool developed primarily for the library cataloging community to lower technical barriers and empower metadata librarians to take more control over their organization’s metadata.

Speaking

One of my favorite aspects of being in an academic environment is the expectation that we share our knowledge and experiences with the larger community.  While I active submit proposals to conferences/events that I will be attending — I’m happy to entertain invitations to speak based on my schedule and knowledge of the topic.  In cases where an honorarium is appropriate, just ask — I try to be flexible, especially when working with smaller or regional user communities.

Workshops

I get a number of requests a year in regards to providing workshops for groups related to MarcEdit.  Workshops tend to run the gambit from a general overview of MarcEdit functionality and workflows, to advanced topics around automation and development or specialty topics related to non-MARC metadata processing.  If your group has a specific set of topics or questions that you would like training on — let me know.  I’m happy to customize a workshop to meet your specific needs.

Because workshop preparation and development is a time intensive effort, I have some pretty specific workshop requirements:

Full day Workshop:

  • Typical Schedule: 9 am – 5 pm; with two 15 minute breaks and an hour break for lunch
  • Sessions may be recorded or streamed; all conference materials provided.
  • Honorarium: $1,500
  • Travel Logistics: Reimbursement for all workshop travel related expenses from Columbus, Ohio to the venue and back.  Includes airfare (if applicable), taxis, rental cars (if applicable), lodging, and miscellanea.

Half day Workshop:

  • Typical Schedule: 9 am – 1 pm; with one 15 minute break.
  • Sessions may be recorded or streamed; all conference materials provided.
  • Honorarium: $800
  • Travel Logistics: Reimbursement for all workshop travel related expenses from Columbus, Ohio to the venue and back.  Includes airfare (if applicable), taxis, rental cars (if applicable), lodging, and miscellanea.

These are the two most typical workshop arrangements, though I have given online workshops, multiple day workshops covering varying topics, and a wide range in between.  If you have a question or are interested in hosting a workshop, just let me know.

Consulting

I am willing to consider offers of consulting work, in areas in which I have skills and knowledge to offer to your organization. Fees and agreement will depend on the project and my availability.
