How it all works

If you were fortunate enough to attend Library Camp in 2013 or 2014, you know exactly how it works! If not, here is a brief introduction to the wonderful world of Library Camps.

Booking is now LIVE via Eventbrite.

Library Camps are unconferences – we will be following the principles of Open Space events – participants can wander in and out of sessions and we ENCOURAGE you to tweet, blog and take photos during Library Camp.

Library Camp has no key-note speaker and you can wander in and out of sessions

Library Camp provides the perfect avenue for communicating, networking and sharing information. At Library Camp it is the PARTICIPANTS who lead the agenda for the day – and until you the ‘participant’ make suggestions or session pitches there is no agenda. You crazy mixed up Info Pros!

Pitches are informal sessions where you lead a discussion

Library camps emphasise the informal, and that’s where we need your input. The theme of this year’s event is Marketing. If you have a burning desire to talk about a particular aspect of marketing libraries or librarians we want to hear from you!

You can pitch sessions that you would like to host or co-present on the day. To get those thought juices flowing check out the session pitches from 2013 and 2014. There is no powerpoint, just a flip chart if you want to make notes. You are not presenting in the traditional style, but leading a discussion around your chosen topic.

And don’t forget there will be cake

We also encourage participants to bring some baked good – sweet or savoury  – to help get everyone in the mood.
