Cycling for Libraries: Copenhagen to Berlin

In a few days I fly off to Cycling for Libraries. An independent “unconference” in the shape of a bicycle tour starting from Copenhagen, Denmark to Berlin, Germany May 28. –June 6. 2011. There will be two days of wrap-up seminars in Berlin on the 6th & 7th of June

The purpose of the Cycling for libraries is to gather a group of 100 library professionals all around the world together to cycle a total of approximately 650 kilometers and to discuss the strategic issues of the library field in seminars along the route. The event starts at the Danish National Library courtyard, and it ends at the 100th Deutsche Bibliothekartag! (The German Library Conference).

Themes for the Conference (both during the ride and at the Seminars in Rostock and Berlin) are: Communicating to customers, Extending knowledge and skills, What the library can offer to the society, Out of "hushing and silence": Library as a public place, Library as an export product, Volunteering in the library, Mobile libraries, Library Lovers' Best Practices, How to Communicate with library users, Extending the Knowledge and Skills, What the libraries offer can to societies surrounding them, Open your data, When libraries are needed...
While I am attending as an individual professional without formal support from my library, I am receive amazing support and fundraising from library colleagues throughout out our system.
It will be lots of fun and I'll have lots of stories to tell. Stay tuned.

All about knowledge and information and digital tools. Lots of new ideas. Some are even good ones.

phall715 @BRintoul Well I'm hoping now that they're digitized, further conversions are easier. But that may be foolish optimism :-)
