If you’re not yet registered for the ACRL MD’s unconference, there’s still time!
ACRL MD’s “Library Without Walls” 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, providing reference service in a cybercafé, mobile apps for libraries or some topic that you suggest. An unconference is user driven, so the specific topics to be discussed will be voted on the morning of the meeting. You can even start participating beforehand by suggesting a topic or volunteering to give a brief presentation on something you would like to share.
