Library Camp: An Unconference

Friday May 8, 2015: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room and Downtown Library: aadlfreespace and Downtown Library: Conference Room A and Downtown Library: Training Center

This event is intended for information professionals and graduate students with an interest in libraries

Library Camp doesn't mean burned marshmallows, mosquito bites, or popsicle stick-based art projects. Library Camp is an informal unconference gathering to share ideas, technologies, and discussions. This event is free to attend and will be held at the Downtown Library. Click here to register.

The goal is to get a bunch of people together, and let them talk about whatever they'd like to talk about, within the rough purview of libraries and library technology. We'll start with a blank schedule and get together to talk about what we'd like to talk about and fill in a few slots on the agenda. We've got time for four sessions and room for at least 4 concurrent sessions, so there could easily be 10-12 different things to talk about during the day.

To help focus the conversation, we're proposing 4 tracks: Nontraditional Collections, Ebooks & Licensing, Special Events, Summer & Gaming. AADL staff will be on hand to talk a bit about these things at AADL, but like any unconference, the event is led by whoever shows up! Here's a rough schedule:
