Library Camp Glasgow 2013
I've attended loads of conferences over the years - librarianship, music librarianship or musicological. However, I've never attended a library camp before - the new-wave, unconference kind of conference where informality and spontaneity are key. Tomorrow, I'm giving it a try - I'm attending the first Scottish library camp, at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow.
We were asked to make our own badges. Anabel - Queen of West of Scotland Tweetups - tells me there's a competition for the best one. I don't think I'll come anywhere near best, but I have crafted my own take on the theme, using tiny alphabet beads, my own Twitter handle, and that of the Royal Conservatoire Library. Look out for me - @karenmca @whittakerlib!
