Resources Mentioned in the Pecha Kucha

As usual, SALALM has me frantically jotting down ideas and resources as they get shared by colleagues on panels. Because there are so many excellent concurrent panels, I wanted to share some of these for those of you who may not have been able to attend yesterday’s first (of many, I hope!) Pecha Kucha.

Katherine McCann (LoC) had a variety of suggestions for finding translations and reviews of translations:
The Complete Review: A Literary Saloon and Site of Review
(Contains Index of Latin and South American Literature)
World Literature Today
Open Letter
Words Without Borders

Kent Norsworthy of LANIC highlighted some of their projects:
UTLANIC is on Twitter
Latin American Government Documents Archive (LAGDA)
Latin American Electronic Data Archive (LAEDA)

Daisy Dominguez presented on her experiences with Twitter. If you tweet, use #Salalm55 to tweet about the Conference. She invites you to connect with her at @daisilla

Martha Kelehan mentioned a number of resources to help you create data visualizations:
Google Motion Charts
VUE (concept mapping software)

Daniel Schoorl also mentioned a number of ways to visualize data in his presentation on the Statistical Abstract of Latin America
Many Eyes
Social Explorer

In Orchid Mazurkiewicz’s presentation on federated searching and Latin American Studies, she reminded us of a resource that many of us learned about at Berlin’s conference:

And Luis Gonzalez talked about two databases/resource pages that he has been maintaining and expanding over the years:
Researching Brazil
Researching Mexico

Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha has just finished, and I, for one, have three pages of notes to follow up on! Owing to wifi failure, I was seen without my computer surgically attached to my fingers; I even proved that I do still know how to write. However, I still managed to learn a lot from each presentation and hope that we have started a new SALALM tradition.

Thanks to Daisy for maintaining the Tweets!
