THATCamp Libraries<http://libraries2013.thatcamp.org/> will be held at Simmons College<http://www.simmons.edu/> in Boston, MA on Saturday, February 23, 2013. THATCamp ("The Humanities and Technology Camp") is an unconference designed to bring people together to explore the role of technology in humanities teaching, learning, and research. THATCamp Libraries<http://libraries2013.thatcamp.org/> will explore the ways that libraries can collaborate with humanities scholars who are using technology in their research and teaching. The unconference is being hosted by Simmons College with generous support and sponsorship of Simmons College GSLIS<http://www.simmons.edu/gslis/> and THATCamp New England<http://newengland2012.thatcamp.org/>.
This one-day conference combines all of the delicious bits of a THATCamp experience into an exhilarating day of learning, engagement with technology, and interaction with other library professionals and technologists. The day will start with your choice of hands-on workshops designed to introduce you to basic skills, tools, and concepts of the digital humanities. We are planning workshops on Omeka, text encoding, and more. For details visit: http://libraries2013.thatcamp.org/workshops/. After the morning workshop there will be a number of engaging "unconference" sessions chosen by conference participants. There will also be a lightning round session where anyone can present on any topic!
THATCamp is an unconference that welcomes graduate students, faculty, educational technologists, librarians, museum professionals and anyone else who is working or wants to work in the humanities and with technology.
