Have you ever been â€œspeed-geeking?â€ Been struck by â€œlightning-talksâ€? Join your colleagues and keynoters Joan Frye Williams and John Blyberg at the first-ever, LITACamp, â€œThe Everywhere Library: Creating, Communicating, Integrating,â€ May 7-8 in Dublin, Ohio.
Participants determine the topic and format of the sessions on-site, sign up for time slots and pitch session ideas to all. This format encourages collaboration, interaction, discussion and real-time innovation. You get to be both a participant and a presenter, discussing and learning about topics you really care about.
Visit the LITA web site for registration and housing information and the LITACamp wiki and LITACamp blog for the most up-to-date information on the Camp. Registration includes Thursday lunch, continental breakfasts, parking and wifi at the conference center. Registration will be accepted online and onsite; deadline to receive LITA housing rate is April 10.
LITACamp will be ideal for anyone interested in using technology to improve services and access for patrons. Librarians, information technologists, students and trustees from the user-centered information community are all encouraged to attend this un-conference focused on timely discussions of current library issues as determined by the participants themselves.
