Presentation: The Broad Library – Librarian skills

Last week I was meeting with my co-members of the Library Avengers for discussions about current and coming projects. We met in the Netherlands and attended a library conference in Soesterberg near Utrecht.
I did a presentation about 23 mobile things, Professional development and the skills libraries need to make their communities smarter now and in the near future… Here are my slides. Thanks Bredebid…

To what question in society is your library the answer? Libraries as strategic learning institutions – Making the community smarter. Presentation in Soesterberg, The Netherlands – 28 november 2014

A conference with an unconference track – Upcoming presentations at Internet Librarian International

I liheartke the concept of unconferences very much. The more loose structure can be very liberating to the traditional conference learning experience. Combining a traditional conference with an unconference track is one of the reasons I am looking very much forward to this years Internet Librarian International – and I am proud to be a part of both the unconference and conference track.

I hope to see you there and talk libraries with you. I am doing talks on Guldborgsund Public Library recent gamification project, Global librarianship and on the brand new unconference X track I will share about the library advocacy group Library Avengers.

I am also looking forward to the Hackerspace Conversations between Rasmus Fangel Vestergaard and Jeroen de Boer and to catch Åke Nygreens talk about Boosting ICT training in public libraries to name just a few.

Here is my speaker program – You can also “borrow me” for a 15 minute talk about about community engagement, gamification, communities and collaboration on the X track… London Calling!

Keynote: “New Librarians Global Connection: best practices, models and recommendations“ – My slides

I was happy to make the keynote for “New Librarians Global Connection: best practices, models and recommendations“ today. You can access the recorded version here.

Thanks to everyone who participated… Here are my slides… Feel free to follow up with questions.

23 Mobile Things, Danish libraries and global librarianship

I had the privilege of guest teaching Trent Hills MLIS class from the University of Washington in Copenhagen where they are studying for 4 weeks at international summer school. Thanks for having me.

Due to an accident (I hope you feel better Trent!) I was not able to get online and I promised the class to share links – So here they are:

23 Mobile things:
Exploring ways that libraries and library staff can use mobile technologies to deliver library services, to engage with their communities and for their own professional development.
You can read more about 23 Mobile Things on this site including link to the original Danish version. Projects that build upon our project can be found here.
Want to know more about the 23 Mobile Things team – Here you go.. – And if you got any questions look at the FAQ and feel free to get in touch.
23 Mobile Things are on twitter – use the hashtag #23mobilethings
Try looking at some of the things and explore the thinking points. I see them as a very strong part of this learning project.

Some of my sparetime projects that I mentioned:

Buy India a Library:
Crowfunding project using social media. 100 awesome people from all around the globe donated and here is the result. This is the #buyalib team 

Help This Week in Libraries:
First the link to the awesome show about library innovation – This Week in Libraries
The crowdfunding project Help TWIL partly funded the 3rd season of the show and raised awareness about its importance.
You can watch the shows online for free – Here is the show with yours truly
And here is the Help TWIL team.

Global librarianship

better togetherConnect worldwide. It is so much easier to work with people from another part of the world than I imagined and you learn so much by doing that. I wrote a post about it.

Be inspired globally and translate ideas so the make sense in your community. The local community is the main focus for the global librarian.
If you want to connect globally use social media and consider the awesome International Librarians Network.


Cycling for libraries:

I mentioned the fantastic moving unconference for librarians and library lovers – Read more about it on their website. When Cycling For Libraries visited my library the international think tank worked with crowdsourcing the future of libraries.

Danish Libraries:
We spoke about the Danish library system, funding etc… You can read a bit more here.

Current Projects – Libraries / Gamification / Nudging:
I am curently working on projects about how libraries can use gamification in a meaningful way to meet people where they do not expect to meet us.
I am also working on a project about nuding and libraries. More info will be available on this blog when the projects go from planning mode to action mode.
Here is the link to the library gamification example I mentioned from Moraine Valley Community College Library and the awesome Troy Swanson.
The other example was Library Game by Shay Moradi.
