Don't forget to sign up for the Unbrella Unconferences, being organised by CILIP's New Professionals Group and Librarycamp, as part of Umbrella.
There will be two mini-librarycamps - here's the schedule - please sign up at Eventbrite if you'd like to come. (Please note: you will need a ticket for Umbrella to attend UNbrella).
Librarycamps are unconferences which means the participants lead the agenda – in fact, there isn’t an agenda until people make suggestions for what they’d like to talk about at the start of the event.
It’s a PowerPoint free zone and there are no keynotes speakers. Anyone can propose or lead or facilitate a session, just turn up and pitch your idea at the start of the event. You can also share your proposals on the Unbrella wiki ahead of the event.
It’s an unconference so we follow the (hippy) principles of Open Space events - people can wander in and out of sessions, tweet, blog and take photos. Past librarycamps have included sessions on:
Design your own library and information qualification
Leadership without portfolio
Codeclubs in libraries
Facilitating the "Coming of Age" of Open Source Software in libraries
DRM is broken and that's OK
How university resource centres can get the best out of mobile learning and open access
The economics of happiness and libraries
If you'd rather speak to a real life librarian about unconferences and how they can help you, don't hesitate to email the Librarycamp-ers at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're on Twitter we'll be tweeting announcements and much more as @librarycamp.
See you there? Sign up at Eventbrite if you'd like to come.
