Last Friday, Jim, Mickey, Sharon, Liz, and Heather wandered across the Flint Hills to Manhattan for the 3rd Library Camp Kansas Unconference at Hale Library on the K-State campus.  Buffy Hamilton stayed an extra day so she could join us, too.  The day was full of discussions, networking, sharing and laughter.  We talked about everything from Google+ to eBooks (and the 3M pilot project) to Ted talks and everything in between with a great mix of Academic, Public, Special and School librarians.

If you attended, the Library Camps Kansas Planning Committee says Thank You and asks that you pretty please complete the Evaluation Survey so we can make Library Camp Kansas 2012 even better than this year’s event.

Some other reminders, courtesy of Jason Coleman (who did a great job motivating and leading us through the planning process this year):

  • Please read the notes from the sessions you missed and add to the notes of the sessions you did attend. All notes are linked from the Agenda
  • We have uploaded 49 photos to Flickr and tagged them with libcampks11. If you took photos you wish to share with the other attendees, please tag them with libcampks11.  Also consider adding them to the Kansas Libraries and Librarians Flickr Pool. Finally, if you have photos from a session, also consider adding a link to the photo on the corresponding page of notes.
  • The Library Camp Kansas 2011 Planning Committee wishes to once again thank all of the sponsors for Library Camp Kansas 2011. It is their generosity that makes it possible for us to charge no registration fees. In alphabetical order, the sponsors were: The College and University Library Section of KLA, The Public Library Section of KLA, Kansas State University Libraries, and The Northeast Kansas Library System.

I believe that Heather will also be participating in a follow-up webinar about the Unconference with Michael Saurs and Christa Burns from the Nebraska Library Commission later this week.  We will be sure to post more information about that.

We are also in the process of posting the Battledecks Video (very funny 4-minute long karaoke / impromptu presentations based on a set of never-before-seen slides).
