Bibliothekartag in Hamburg, Germany: May 20-25 2012

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:

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: and
  • 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
