LITACamp is a place to discuss and explore the latest in library technology topics and speculate on what might be to come.
Our theme, “The Everywhere Library: Creating, Communicating, Integrating” and our award winning keynote speakers, John Blyberg and Joan Frye Williams are perfect for the wide range of unconference possible presentations and discussions about the new and ever changing landscape we work in.
For example OCLC just announced WorldCat Local Quickstart. Marshall Breeding has said of the announcement: “I see this move stirring up the mix of options and opportunities for libraries. Anything that provides new alternatives to libraries is welcome relative to the state of affairs of recent times where libraries feel frustrated by too few options. So weâ€™ve seen open source come in to challenge proprietary systems; weâ€™re seeing initiatives to fundamentally rebuild library automation systems. Now OCLC adds Web-scale, WorldCat-based library automation to the mix. The library automation scene is getting to be more interesting.”
Stirring up. Mix. Options and opportunities. New alternatives. Web- scale. All the very best of reasons to go to LITACamp.
