University of Illinois Hosts Big Ten
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) recently hosted the 39th Big Ten Printing Conference. The successful event drew more than 60 attendees.
Sessions covered both printing and copyright topics, with a separate track for each. On the printing side were sessions on print workflow, variable data, the aging of the printing industry and supervising Millennials (i.e. today’s college students). Copyright sessions covered Fair Use in course packets, copyright from the publisher’s point of view and electronic reserves.
Tony Clements, from the Campus Recreation department at UIUC, started the conference with some laughs and insights in a keynote speech entitled, “From the Rail of the Titanic.” He encouraged attendees to interact with their customers in four ways: communicate, evaluate, redirect resources based on feedback, and reevaluate after making changes.
