SSA Exhibitions

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Exhibition department at the SSA is also known for its dedicated efforts to reach new audiences via the web, cell phones, and digital media.  In the past, the department has relied upon the use of personal cameras and computer programs loaned by volunteers, interns, and employees to complete the image capture, conversion, and sharing of these outreach offerings.  For their 2011 equipment minigrant, SSA will purchase a digital SLR camera, accessories, an Eye-Fi memory card that will allow staff to upload images of exhibition openings and events to social image sharing sites (including Facebook, Flickr and Picasa) in real time, as well as software that will convert PowerPoint files to a movie format, allowing them to update their digital display more often with timely and relevant exhibition information.
