Library Camp UK 14 #LibCampUK14, Saturday, 13 September 2014, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

librarycamp

 

We are pleased to announce the fourth annual LibraryCamp unconference, happening at Newcastle City Library on Saturday 13 September. The event is free and the theme is improving libraries. LibraryCamp is open to all – you don’t need to work in a library and we’d urge you to come and experience an unconference if you’ve not been before., especially if you work in a public library. It’s free to attend and there are no keynotes speakers – anyone can suggest, facilitate or lead a session and sessions can take many forms – workshops, show and tell, debate, how to, collaboration, hands on. Past sessions at LibraryCamp have included:

  • How to establish a unified online presence for UK public libraries
  • Demonstrating value of college libraries
  • Are public libraries safe under local authority control?
  • DRM is rubbish – How to strip the DRM from an ebook
  • How to run a Code Club and intro to Scratch
  • LibraryBox: filesharing in the wild
  • Developing a new library advocacy model
  • Open source software for libraries
