Becoming a World Wide Web Server Expert

A LITA Regional Institute

Tuesday, March 17, 1998 9:00 - 4:00

Chicago Illini Union
University of Illinois at Chicago
828 S. Wolcott Ave.
Chicago, IL 60612

Through a series of presentations, demonstrations, group exercises, handouts, and video interviews, this one-day workshop will address the issues surrounding the initial development and ongoing maintenance of useful World Wide Web (WWW) servers.

TOPICS
Specifically, the workshop will focus on five major WWW server topics:

  1. Hardware and software
  2. Qualities of useful servers
  3. Content
  4. Server maintenance
  5. Staffing

EMPHASIS
In an effort to appeal to the widest audience and provide the foundation for individual growth, principles and guidelines will be emphasized over platform-dependent functions and features.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The workshop is intended for those considering or beginning the implementation of a WWW server. The only prerequisites are knowledge of basic computer operations (creating, deleting, and moving files and directories), a sense of curiosity, and a willingness to learn.

WHEN AND WHERE
Tuesday, March 17, 1998 9:00 - 4:00

PRESENTER
The workshop will be lead by Eric Lease Morgan, a systems librarian from the North Carolina State University Libraries. "I consider myself a librarian first and a computer user second whose professional goal is to discover new ways to use computers to provide better library services."

An Internet user since 1989, Eric has given dozens of presentations, written more than a few articles, and published two books (WAIS and Gopher Servers and Teaching a New Dog Old Tricks: A Macintosh-based World Wide Web Starter Kit Featuring MacHTTP and Other Tools).
