Library Camp 2015

Date: 
Saturday, 23 May 2015 (All day)
Description: 

 

 

 

Drumroll please…. the CDG in conjunction with our lovely friends, the Academic and Special Libraries Section and Saint Patrick’s College Library, are delighted to announce that May 23rd marks the return of the LAICDG Library Camp!

 

 

Library Camp is a chance for all members of the Library Community to get together to discuss current trends and opinions on everything Library related. What makes Library Camp a bit different is that it is pretty informal and inclusive; you don’t have to be working in a Library or be a LAI member, all you need is an interest!  The Camp is a daylong “Unconference” where there will be several mini workshops and talks happening at once. The idea is that you can wander to and from the various discussions allowing you to gather as many ideas as possible.  Another perk of the Library Camp is that in spirit of networking (and eating!) everyone is encouraged to bring sweet and savoury food to share, so if you like cake you like Library Camp!

The theme of this year’s event is Marketing, we chose this topic on foot of the success of theInformation Skills for the Future Event. This event generated some healthy discussions about what skills are deemed important for future career development. Throughout the course of the day it became apparent that Marketing and knowing how to brand your library/services/youis a real cause for concern among the Library Community. It is hoped that the Camp will help address this skills gap and generate some new ideas on how to tackle it.

 

We are very fortunate that this year our event will be hosted in the brand new state of the art library in Saint Patrick’s College Drumcondra.  So regardless if you’re an established Librarian or you are just curious about the world of information and Library management we want  to see you there to join us in the discussion and the fun.  Keep an eye on our BlogTwitter andFacebook for more details on this event and how to get tickets.
