NANOS 2010 Materials Posted to NOVEL

At the NANOS 2010 meeting in Tucson, NOVEL was presented in three separate venues.

1) An overview of progress on the project during the last year was presented to the NANOS Executive Board on Saturday, March 6.

2) An Optional Symposium was offered on March 8.

This session provided an update to NOVEL: the Neuro-Ophthalmology Virtual Education Library. Many enhancements have been made to the digital library, and new collections have been added. Specific collections, such as those of Shirley H. Wray, Robert B. Daroff, and Helmut Wilhem were highlighted. Following the NOVEL update, free web-based online tools which can make member’s lives easier were presented. The tools covered included the Doodle Poll and Scheduler, a free online tool that makes organizing meetings and getting feedback a snap. Other tools from the Google suite were demonstrated, including Google Scholar, Desktop, Docs, Calendar and using Picasa and YouTube to share video clips.

3) A Poster was presented on Tuesday, March 9 at the general poster session.

All the NOVEL related materials presented at the NANOS 2010 meeting are now available on the NOVEL Web site. You can find the PPT presentations, the poster and all handouts at:
