ACPL Library Camp 2010

September 23, 2010





ACPL Library Camp will take place at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Thursday, September 23, 2010.  This unconference will feature guest speaker Peter BrombergAssistant Director at the Princeton Public Library.  See one of Peter's brilliant presentations here.




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.


This year we're also planning to have an eReader Fair.  We'll have a hands-on session to compare the iPad, Nook, Kindle, and Sony Touch.


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.  If you present a pecha kucha, youcanhazteeshirt! Interested in sharing a pecha kucha?  E-mail mkiser[at]acpl.lib.in.us.


Staff attending all day will receive three LEU (Library Education Units); two will be Technology LEUs.


Dress for the day is casual.  


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