BHL Presentation for the Mae Jemison Reading Room, Mamelodi, South Africa #BHLib

I gave a talk (filling in for Chris Freeland who's on the BHL injured reserve list) on the Biodiversity Heritage Library to a group of students at the Mae Jemison Science Reading Room (Mamelodi, South Africa - near Pretoria) along with Nancy Gwinn and Grace Costantino. Nancy spoke about Smithsonian Libraries and Grace demonstrated Flickr tagging. We had an enthusiastic group of students and overall had a really great time with them - hope it was mutual!

Thanks to the staff at the US Embassy (Amy Cole, Steve Kerchoff) for arranging the visit.
