The Signing Tree, Birmingham on Saturday 13 October 2012
Librarycamp is an unconference style meeting. Unconferences are events with a number of things in common:
* Free to attend *
* No set, pre-defined agenda *
* A strong focus on attendee participation *
* Relentlessly positive, constructive and creative *
Librarycamp is a place for anyone interested in improving libraries. You don't have to work in a library to come and anyone can propose or lead a session/workshop/discussion. See what's been suggested so far at the wiki.

When & Where
Librarycamp is a network of user generated unconferences for people interested in libraries. Anyone can organise a librarycamp - you don't need to be a librarian or even work in a library. A national Librarycamp unconference is held annually in Birmingham in the autumn and regional events take place throughout the year.
At a librarycamp the participants lead the agenda – in fact, there isn’t an agenda until people make suggestions for what they’d like to talk about at the start of the day. It’s free to attend and there are no keynotes speakers. It’s open to anyone: public/private/whatever sector and you don't have to work in a library. It’s an unconference so we follow the principles of Open Space events - people can wander in and out of sessions, tweet, blog and take photos all day.
