Broadband and libraries unconference

Did you miss the Broadband and Libraries unconference hosted by Yarra Plenty Regional Libraries in March this year? Fear not! The presentations are available online now.

The third unconference was held on the theme Broadband and Libraries, an in-depth look at the upcoming National Broadband Network in Australia and its consequences and opportunities for libraries.

Part think-tank, part workshop, part brainstorming session, the unconference eschews the formal conference. Rather than a scheduled day of lectures and PowerPoint presentations, the day encompasses discussion and interactive tutorials guided by experts and enthusiasts in the field.

The unconference is inspired by the Library Boot Camps run in the USA. The aim of the unconference is to provide participants, or “unconferencers” with a personal learning experience whereby they can network, share knowledge and explore areas of interest.

e-book vendors and other library related technology providers were also in attendance.
