Welcome to the Library Camp 2012 wiki. This is your wiki and you can add pages and edit pages really easily.
Here's a guide if you are not sure how: Link. If you want to create new pages you'll need to sign in or sign up..

Library Camp 2012 is a place for anyone interested in modernising and transforming libraries of all kinds to ask, connect, consider, converse, convince, create, debate, deliberate, disagree, discover, discuss, dream, enjoy, examine, explore, invent, investigate, laugh, learn, listen, plan, plot, question, reflect, relax, share, talk, teach, theorise, think, wonder …and to eat cake!

Library Camp 2012 takes place on Saturday, 13 October 2012 from 09:00 to 17:00 at The Signing Tree Conference Centre, Birmingham. Eventbrite page.

Library Camp is an unconference, where participants decide on the programme at the beginning of the event, working on the principle that the sum of the knowledge, experience and expertise of the people in the room is likely to be greater than that of those on the stage at traditional conferences. Not been to an unconference before? Not sure what to expect? These articles will make it all a bit clearer...

Law of two feet: If, during the course of the gathering, any person finds him or herself in any situation where they are neither learning nor contributing, they must use their two feet and go to some more productive place.
