Library Camp is back in May – pitches at the ready!

We have great news – LAICDG Library Camp is back in May! in collaboration with the wonderful Dublin Business School  and our friends in A&SL, who’ve pitched in on the last three LibCamps (haha geddit??)  we’re bringing you hot topics, discussion, peer-to-peer learning and (of course) edible treats* !

Pencil it into your diaries – we’ll be announcing a range of exciting pitches soon. Following on from the brilliant LILAC 2016 conference in UCD (which many couldn’t make it to), this year we’re posing an open-ended (and provocative) question to get you all thinking about what you’d like to talk about: are all librarians teachers? See why you should attend and even consider pitching on our Library Camp 2016 page.

  • When: Saturday May 21st 2016, 12 noon – 4pm
  • Where: Dublin Business School
  • Booking: BOOK HERE!

This is an “unconference”, a gathering without set speakers where people come together to discuss what is most important to them about libraries. You might like to pitch about how librarians contribute to education, literacy, community engagement etc. Or you might have a strong opinion on the challenges of teaching in any number of library settings…perhaps you think there’s too much emphasis on teaching in librarianship and we should concentrate on our core librarian skills…or is teaching a core librarian skill? It’s up to you to pick your angle!

We need you to send us your pitches on the topic – for lots of ideas see our What to Pitch page. And if you need a bit of convincing that pitching at Library Camp is something you could do, or just want more info then see our How Library Camp works page.
Send us an email (laicareerdevelopment@gmail.com) and let us know your thoughts. We’ll be adding pitches to the site (see our Pitches page) as we receive them so check back here over the next few weeks to get a taste of what you can look forward to on the 21st May!
