Welcome to Camp

Welcome to the first of what we hope will be a great many BC Camps for library people. 


This camp is called DataCamp after the trends and observations of library people who made up Open Data Summit and BC Libraries Inspire.

We are so glad you could come.  Here’s the rough plan.  If there is more to add to this conversation please speak up, we are all in this together.

Doors at 8am

1. HELLO: Please check in with folks at the door.  We have some name tag supplies is you did not bring your own.  Can you book on with us with your twitter handle?

2. VOTE the to do list: Sometime before we start please visit our questions and ideas up in the meeting room.  Do you have anything to add?  Feel Free.

Mark a maxiumum of five votes for a question/idea up for the morning’s to do.  We’ll table the others to follow up online or for next camp.  The core goal of the founding group was an event around open data literacy, that’s not cast in stone but we can take it as a frame
