The Illinois Association of College & Research Libraries will host an Unconference and a Luncheon at this year’s ILA Annual Meeting. Both events will take place on Thursday, October 20. The IACRL Unconference Hackathon (which does not involve any actual computer coding), will take place from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM in Room 48 of the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. A hackathon is defined as “an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming”. IACRL and ILA want to take the typical hackathon and turn it on its head. Join your academic library colleagues for a morning of collaborative programming of the profession. Attendees will have the chance to participate in activities for both new and experienced librarians. Look at your job, your duties, and your role through a new lens–there are no limits.
Immediately following the Unconference is the IACRL Luncheon, with guest speaker Derek Blaida, lobbyist for ILA. Please consider joining to meet IACRL members and learn about upcoming activities. Registration for ILA is required to attend the Unconference and the Luncheon. Please be sure to check the appropriate boxes to let planners know you plan to attend. To register, go here.
