Are you a library hacker who has found new ways to leverage library data to build 21st century services?
Are you a systems implementer boosting productivity by rapidly building innovative applications?
Do you think you've found a better way to create or deliver information for library users?
A programme of optional Bootcamps offer ELAG participants the opportunity to learn new skills or enhance their knowledge of specific topics related to library technology. These Bootcamps provide participants a way to learn from experts and veterans in a particular domain. Hands-on and fast-paced, these Bootcamps give a primer on the most up-to-date practices in library automation and provide insights into new, upcoming technologies. Bootcamp leaders have the opportunity to present their work, test their applications in new contexts and find collaboration partners.
Please share your expertise, show what you can do, and meet with other library enthusiasts.
Elag 2013 will be hosted by Ghent University Library and the Ghent University Faculty Library Arts & Philosophy in Ghent, Belgium.
Guidelines for Bootcamp leaders are available at: http://www.elag.org/guidebc.htm
