I’m very happy to announce that I have been invited to speak at the Bibliothekartag Library Conference in Hamburg, Germany later this month.
I’m excited because the Bibliothekartag is the biggest library-conference in Germany andEurope. Every year more than 4000 librarians from Germany, Austria and Switzerland join together to talk about the future of libraries. I can’t wait to meet some new folks and talk about libraries.
You can find more information about the conference here: http://www.bibliothekartag2012.de/
I will be in Hamburg from May 21th to the 25th to attend and present at the conference. During my time there, I will be presenting on the following topics:
- Help unveil the German/American Gaming Library/Museum/Archive League, which was developed in collaboration with Eli Neiburger and Christoph Deeg.
- Present on the topic of gaming in libraries and share my experiences with implementing video game programs and collections with German librarians.
- Participate in a workshop for librarians on how we can possibly change the management structure of libraries in the future (for more information, please see these two posts: http://goo.gl/DI0cc and http://goo.gl/Cxpqv)
- And finally, of course, enjoying some video games with librarians from Europe!
Thank you very much to my trip sponsors and Christoph Deeg of the Zukunftswerkstatt Gaming Roadshow
