Contest: Want to become a star on Google+ and hangout with Ted and Jamal from the Coke Archives?

This Thursday at 2:00 EST Ted Ryan and Jamal Booker from the famous Coca-Cola Archives will be hosting a live Google+ Hangout giving people a behind the scenes look at their fantastic collections and a chance to ask questions in real time. You can read more about it here and here.

While anyone will be able to attend the hangout and ask questions, there will also be eight people featured on the main screen below the main event and who will be part of the live conversation. Ted and Jamal would like some of those featured people to be representatives from the archival community and so they’ve asked me to help put out the call for volunteers. It’s a great opportunity, so if you’re free on Thursday afternoon and have a webcam and a microphone, here’s your chance to become a Google+ star.

All you need to do is leave a comment below stating why you want to participate or why you think you’d be a good choice to represent the archival perspective. Ted and Jamal will review the comments and select the winner(s). Remember that you’ll be part of the live conversation so you need to be prepared to participate and ask questions. Please leave your comment no later than 2 pm [EST] on Wednesday. Let me know if you have any questions and don’t be shy about entering. This is your chance at 4 x 15 minutes of fame!

    I am the current User Engagement Librarian for Samford University, coordinating outreach activities and web enhancement for instruction. Previous experience includes special projects in archives and digital metadata for Auburn University and public relations consulting for the American Cancer Society. I have a good understanding of the balance between archives and access issues and the world of product licensing/corporate librarianship. I have previously participated in presentations and panels in national venues and web conferences, so speaking in this type of venue would not be intimidating to me. As an Alabama native, Coca-Cola has been an integral brand for my whole life; even if I’m not selected to be a part of the discussion, it will be fascinating to attend this Hangout and get an inside look at the archives. Thank you.
