Free conference - Collaboration UnConference

Collaboration UnConference, an unconference for anyone interested in technology uses in Arkansas libraries, is less than a month away! This day-long event will be an opportunity to learn, to share ideas, to discuss projects, and to build relationships with like-minded colleagues from all types of libraries.


Plenty of space is available and registration is free! To register, go to the 2010 Registration page and leave a comment that includes your name, library, email address, and lunch selection. Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Arkansas State Library.


We want to find out which topics interest you most. While attendees will determine the discussion topics during the opening session, the morning will go much smoother if we can get an idea of the topics that will be popular. To suggest a topic, go to the future cuc topics page and leave a comment. If you see a comment for a topic that you like, please comment in support of it. All suggestions are welcome and encouraged!


When: Friday, July 30, 2010, 9 AM – 4 PM

Location: The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Library


Sponsored by the Arkansas Library Association Information Technology Roundtable
