Library Camp 2008 @ Allen County Public Library

September 16, 2008

wiki at

Library Camp 2008 will take place at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Indiana* on Tuesday, September 16, 2008. This unconference will feature guest speaker David Lee King from the Topeka & Shawnee County (Kansas) Public Library.

*Our address is 900 Library Plaza. Google Maps still refers to our address as 900 Webster St. It’s the same place on the map.

At Library Camp we’ll focus on library technology, innovation and problem-solving. Wikipedia defines an unconference as “a facilitated, face-to-face, and participant-driven conference centered around a theme or purpose”. Unlike other conferences, Library Camp costs nothing except the price of gas, food and lodging if you plan to stay overnight. Everyone eager to discuss libraries, technology and innovation is welcome, students and professionals alike.

ACPL’s Library Camp will follow the Pecha Kucha Night format: people who want to share will give 6-minute presentations, followed by 1-minute Q & A. We will cram 8 presentations into one hour. Are you up to the challenge? Contact Sean at srobinson[at] if you are interested in presenting.

To add your name to the list of attendees, please e-mail mkiser[at] You will receive an e-mail with an invite key so you can add your name and contact information to the wiki.
