“The AALL 2009 Annual Meeting Theme is ‘Innovate.’ In that spirit, there will be an “unconference” for the first time ever this year prior to the Annual Meeting. Attendees will have the chance to explore ideas and discuss issues with fellow law librarians in an informal setting. We’re calling it ‘Lawberry Camp.’ ” [from website]
The unconference is the brain child of AALL Computing Services Special Interest Section members Sarah Glassmeyer and Jason Eiseman.
Here’s more info about it from an email to AALL SIS members:
WHO: You. Yes, you. It doesn’t matter if what type of librarian you are, how long you’ve been a librarian, if your management or not, or what type of library you work in (or if you’re employed at all!). If you are coming to AALL, you are the right person to attend Lawberry Camp.
WHAT: Lawberry Camp, an unconference before AALL. What’s an “unconference?” An unconference is a participant driven meeting. There are no planned presentations and the topics of discussion will be decided on by attendees on that day. Facilitators are present to keep the conversation flowing.
WHERE: WCC-Room 144 C
WHEN: Saturday, July 25 3pm – 6pm
WHY: Because you have something to share. Because you want to hear what others have to say. Because you want to meet with other law librarians in an informal setting. Because you have nothing to do the Saturday afternoon before AALL starts.
HOW: More information and registration can be found at http://lawberrycamp.com Attendance is limited to 50 people, so don’t delay!
