ACRL is in Seattle next week and the Radical Reference people are planning a preconference unconference on March 12th? Interested? Look for more information on the facebook group and the wiki. [related grouchy tweet about ACRL web page]
… because he just got back from Library Camp Kansas and had a great time. Or, as Michael Sauers’ shirt says “im in ur STATE UNing ur CONFERENCE” More photos from the libcampks08 tag and a few more blog posts under the libcampks08 tag at Technorati. There’s another Library Camp happening in Ann Arbor Michigan tomorrow which I was sad to just miss by a few days.
Kathryn Greenhill has a great sensible post on why learning emerging techologies is part of every librarianâ€™s job. Kathryn worked with other Australian librarians on Library2.0 on the loose, an unofficial unconference for Western Australian library folks (and a few from other places). Kathryn is one of the many international librarians that I feel comfortable calling a colleague because even though we’ve only met in person once, I see her “around” many of the online places that I frequent and keep up with her via blog, twitter, flickr etc. I know this is sort of old news online, but I found it again via Manage This which is quickly becoming one of my favorite library blogs.
LibCamp was an unconference held at Boston Public Library last week. I didn’t go, but Brian did and made a great list of notes from his wrap-up so that libraries who might be curious about things like gaming, twitter and printing from the wifi network can check out a short list of links and get some good information.
