Register now for the Lake Superior Libraries UnSymposium, where you determine the conversation!
At your typical conference, the sessions have been planned months, if not years in advance, so the most current, pressing concerns in Library Land are relegated to informal conversations that pop up along the sidelines.
At the Lake Superior Libraries UnSymposium, the sidelines are the conference. Topics and agendas are determined in a bottom-up, democratic manner, rather than being handed down from on high. Everyone wants to talk about how publishers are handling e-books? Done. You’re the only one who wants to talk about the classification of old-timey radio programs? Too bad. Join your brethren in informative conversation and don’t forget to check out the tech petting zoo. This is an event for folks who want to actively participate (see: unconference). Interested in facilitating a discussion? Read this first: How to run a great unconference session.
You’ll come away from the UnSymposium invigorated by lively discussions and ready to take new ideas and excitement back to your library.
