CampYA 2009


CampYA is for teen librarians, staff, students, and anyone interested in sharing with and learning from a community of professional peers. As with most "unconferences," participants at CampYA are expected to share their work, skills, or knowledge as active participants. CampYA is a participatory user-generated "unconference" focusing on services to teens. In the tradition of other unconferences, the content of the sessions is determined and managed by attendees. Sessions may include (but are not limited to): demonstrations, how-to workshops, debates, or problem-solving sessions. Participants will determine the day's offerings in the opening session, and all sessions will be summarized in the closing session. This collaborative  environment presents unique opportunities for learning, sharing, and relationship-building that can be elusive at more formal conferences.



Registration is free and open to all interested librarians, administrators, library staff and students. In order to register, you will first need to set up an account with pbworks.  This will allow you to access the registration form.
