Library Camp Glasgow 2

Library Camp 2

I’m delighted to say that the second Library Camp Glasgow (#libcampgla) will be taking place at the Mitchell Library on Saturday, 8th November. I’m very grateful to the Mitchell for hosting this again. Full details are available on the Library Camp Glasgow wiki and bookings are now open on Eventbrite. Attendance is completely free. For those of you who have not been to a Library Camp before, it is an “unconference” which is entirely user-generated – the programme is decided on the day from session pitches proposed by attendees. This makes it very participatory and I’d urge as many of you as possible to think of a topic on which you would be willing to lead a discussion. (NB Library Camp is a non-tech, PowerPoint-free zone.) You can pitch in advance on the wiki (username and password will be supplied when you book) or at the beginning of Camp – the wiki has examples of previous pitches and write-ups of some of last years sessions to help you.

Library Camp has prizes! Last year’s Soapbox feature has been renamed the MmITS Minute of Madness in honour of the prize sponsor – MmITS has generously donated a Kindle Fire for the best contribution. Do you have a library-related peeve or passion that you can rant about for 60 seconds? Sign up on the wiki for a chance to win this amazing prize. There will also be prizes for the best home-made name badges, so time to get crafting! Last year, this was VERY competitive and took off on Twitter as the #greatbritishbadgeoff. Once again, examples from last year of both these competitions are on the wiki.

Morning refreshments, sponsored by SALCTG, and lunch, sponsored by SLIC, will be available. Many thanks to them for their help.

Finally, please let me know of any special requirements, e.g. access or diet, after you have booked. I’m also happy to answer any questions you might have.

I look forward to seeing some of you at Library Camp – and please help with publicity if you can by circulating this information to your own networks.

    Thank you for organising again Anabel, last years event was great fun and a valuable day – lots of great people and library chat.

      Thanks Heather – here’s hoping it’s just as good this year.
