ACRL MD is hosting its first ever unconference, with a theme of “Library Without Walls”. This unconference will provide an opportunity to meet with fellow librarians and library staff to discuss ways to extend the library and its services beyond its traditional borders. Topics might include things like widgets and toolbars that let patrons search the library catalog from non-library websites or having a librarian provide reference service in a cybercafé. An unconference is user driven, so the specific topics to be discussed will be voted on the morning of the meeting. You can start participating beforehand by suggesting a topic or volunteering to give a brief presentation on something you would like to share. For more information or to contribute ideas and topics to the unconference, visit the unconference wiki at http://acrlmd.wiki.zoho.com/2010-unconference.html or contact Michael Shochet at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or just register for the unconference, and we will contact you.
When: May 14, 2010. 9:30 – 1:00
Where: The Loyola/Notre Dame Library (directions)
