Why you should participate in #libuncon & Planning an Unconference, by Michelle Boule



  • Save the date: May 2nd, 2011, 1pm EDT.


  • At your library for a staff development day. Or an unconference for a regional library cooperative. Maybe something hosted at a state library? Or hosted by your state or regional library association. A great place to hold an uncon for National Library Unconference Day ’11 is at an LIS school. It’s totally up to you!



We’ll be streaming a free keynote session full of lightning talks to all participating librarians, libraries and library organizations. Our confirmed speakers so far include:


  • Organize your group, and get ready to change the world. Once you sign up, we’re imaging you’d use a computer + a projector to screen the keynote to your local participants, then you’d get to your individual unconference.
  • We’ll also have a Twitter unconference via hashtag #libuncon and a chat-room unconference at tinychat.com/8bitlibrary. Also, we’re hoping people share what they learned and accomplished via blog posts and youtube videos with the tag libuncon!

It’s time to #makeithappen! signed, JP & 8bitlibrary.com’s #TeamRock8.
