Library Camp: The UN-Conference 2012


Page history last edited by Deb Noggle 3 minutes ago


The 2012 Un-Conference, Library Camp, is over, but it was a blast!  


You can see notes and presentations at the Presentations Page



ACPL Library Camp will take place at the Allen County Public Library Main Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana on Wednesday, October 24, 2012.  This UN-conference will feature guest speakers, presentation opportunities for you, and a plan-as-we-go format of breakout sessions in the afternoon.   If you've never been to an UN-conference before, it's a great way to learn what you want to learn while networking with other librarians!


This year's featured guest speakers are Sarah Steiner and Timothy Travaglini.


New this year:  Post your ideas for topics and vote for your favorite topics ONLINE at our Idea Informer page.

We will use the topics YOU post as ideas for our afternoon agenda.  You have until Monday, October 22nd to participate on the Idea Informer page, so check it out and don't be shy!  You'll also have an opportunity to pitch ideas for breakout sessions during the morning of Library Camp.


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.


A portion of ACPL's Library Camp will follow the Pecha Kucha Night format: 20 Powerpoint slides in 6 minutes!  People who want to share will give 6-minute presentations, followed by 1-minute Q & A.  We will cram 6-8 presentations into 45 minutes.  If you present a pecha kucha, you'll receive an ACPL mystery gift!  Interested in sharing a pecha kucha? E-mail: dnoggle@acpl.info  Want to know an easy way to remember how to pronounce "pecha kucha"? Click here for a video clip.  Dress for the day is casual.  


It's not too late to register... please see the Attendees page for more information. 


The first 75 registered Library Camp attendees will receive the always trendy, much-sought-after official 2012 Library Camp T-Shirt, featuring original artwork by artist Kay Gregg!
