Happily Sharing Knowledge, Expertise, and Library Resources

shareWe’re excitedly anticipating a day of collaboration, discussion, and learning about interlibrary loan and resource sharing.  Here’s the great thing about an unconference–the discussion will be what we, the participants, determine it will be!

Here’s what is planned so far:  At the start of the day, all participants will meet together to brainstorm and choose the specific topics to be discussed during the break-out sessions.  During this time, we’ll all have an opportunity to offer some topic suggestions. We’ll vote and set a schedule.

Once the schedule is set, participants can attend whichever sessions sound interesting.  Each session will have a volunteer facilitator who will start a discussion and encourage sharing and brainstorming.  And at the end of the day, we’re allowing one final session to talk about any questions that remain unanswered.

An unconference is dependent on your participation, so begin to think of topics you are interested in discussing with others.  Or maybe you’ve got a phenomenal work-around to share? Or a pressing question about work-flow?  Come prepared to dialog with others.  Add your topic ideas and start the conversation here: Google Doc .  The SIG committee has added a few suggestions here and on the registration page to get us all started thinking.

If you aren’t registered, IT’S NOT TOO LATE!  There’s more information about our day here, or check the link below.

By day I’m an interlibrary loan librarian who loves to think about all things library–sharing resources, information literacy, and how we play and learn. And when I go home, I am passionate about growing and cooking good food for the ones I love. And quilting.
