CFParticipation: The Collective, a New Conference Concept

The Library CollectiveĀ is a two-day conferenceĀ that will take place February 19-20, 2015, in Knoxville, Tennessee, and explore the theme “libraries as curators and creators.” Aimed at “library stakeholders” and “next-generation librarians,” the conference’s goals are “learning, networking, and kickstarting new ideas.” The Library Collective, chaired by Ashley Maynor and Corey Halaychik (both University of Tennessee, Knoxville):

[I]s a new conference concept that aims to offer the best of the traditional conference and ‘un-conference’ worlds–enough organization so that you come away with some tangible skills, knowledge, and new contacts but enough flexibility so that our program doesn’t grow stale in the time between proposals and the actual event. Participants are involved in creating the gathering program in an interactive, transparent way.

Voting is now open on proposed sessions until August 31, 2014.Ā
