Description

 

LITACamp is a library technology un-conference for anyone interested in libraries using all types and implementations of technology to continually improve services and access for patrons. It features an egalitarian, community-driven format in which most presentations are designed and delivered by attendees.  Librarians, information technologists, students and trustees from the user-centered information community are all welcome and encouraged to attend this un-conference focused on timely discussions of current library issues as determined by the participants themselves.

 

What is the format of this un-conference?

 

LITACamp has no pre-determined session topics or presenters, other than the daily keynote sessions. You, the participants, create and lead most of the sessions! You determine the topic and format of your session, sign up for a time slot, and pitch your session idea to the group. The exact schedule will be created as we go. The purpose of this format is to encourage collaboration, interaction, discussion, and real-time innovation. 

 

The daily keynotes, delivered by notables known for pushing library technology to directly serve patrons, will be designed to stimulate discussions and ideas and energize the days sessions.  Our Keynoters for this year include:
