Library Camp 2016: An Unconference


Friday April 15, 2016: 9:30am to 4:30pm  Add to Calendar /   Add to Google Calendar


Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

For Whom

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. And a good excuse to hide from Tax Day!

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, to talk about whatever you'd like to talk about, within the rough purview of libraries and library technology. We'll start with a blank schedule and at our morning gathering, we'll fill the agenda with your ideas. We've got time and space for at least 4 concurrent sessions, so there could easily be 10-12 different things to talk about during the day.

Bring your ideas and quandaries. AADL staff will be on hand to help with directing the conversation, but like any unconference, the event is led by whoever shows up! Here's a rough schedule:
