The North Carolina State University Libraries will be hosting the 3rd
Annual Liberact Workshop on September 17-18, 2015 at the James B. Hunt Jr.
Library in Raleigh, North Carolina . We invite you to participate in
this exciting workshop for practitioners and researchers involved in
interactive technologies in Libraries.
Liberact strives to meet the need for libraries and museums to stay current
with the rapidly changing landscape of interactive technologies through an
intensive collaborative experience that provides a rich opportunity for
cross-channel communication. Most workshop attendees are also presenters,
as librarians, technologists, and faculty come together to present current
projects, discuss next steps and brainstorm future projects. Previous
workshops were hosted by Harvard University  and the University of
Calgary . This workshop will immediately precede the Designing Libraries
IV conference to be held at the same location on Sept. 20-22.
Presentations are encouraged to explore the topics of immersive
experiences, visualization spaces, and associated technologies such as
virtual reality, augmented reality, and 3D environments. Proposals are
being accepted for the following formats: presentation (15-45 min.),
interactive poster/demonstration, and lightning talk. The deadline for
proposals is August 24, 2015.
Event details, including registration link, proposal submission form, and
accommodation information are available through the workshop website at
http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/liberact. The registration cost of $150 covers
breakfasts, lunches, breaks, and the cost of bus travel from the downtown
hotel to the Hunt Library. A block of hotel rooms will be available for
$137/night + tax for reservations made until August 17. Attendance will be
limited to a total of 50 people.
Thanks for your interest in Liberact 2015!
