Library Camp 2008

Library Camp 2008 @ Allen County Public Library

September 16, 2008



Library Camp 2008 will take place at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Tuesday, September 16, 2008.  This unconference will feature guest speaker David Lee King from the Topeka & Shawnee County (Kansas) Public Library


At Library Camp we'll focus on library technology, innovation and problem-solving.  Wikipedia defines an unconference as "a facilitated, face-to-face, and participant-driven conference centered around a theme or purpose".  Unlike other conferences, Library Camp costs nothing except the price of gas, food, and lodging if you plan to stay overnight.  Everyone eager to discuss libraries, technology and innovation is welcome, students and professionals alike.


ACPL's Library Camp will follow the Pecha Kucha Night format: people who want to share will give 6-minute presentations, followed by 1-minute Q & A.  We will cram 8 presentations into one hour.  Are you up to the challenge?  Be a presenter and youcanhazteeshirt!  Contact Sean at srobinson[at]acpl.info if you are interested in presenting, and add your topic next to your name on the attendee page.


We are happy to announce that staff attending all day will receive three LEU (Library Education Units).  People who attend both of David Lee King's presentations plus the 6-minute presentations will receive all three LEU.


Dress for the day is casual.  


To add your name to the list of attendees, please e-mail mkiser[at]acpl.info.  You will receive an e-mail with an invite key so you can add your name and contact information to the wiki.
