The Power of the Unconference

Interesting report on a youth engagement conference

"I think it was clear it was going to be a good day during the introductions. Around fifty youth workers, technologists and others with an interest in youth participation from as far away as Lancashire, Devon, Norfolk and Wiltshire had gathered at DIUS on a Saturday morning for UKYouthOnline, organised by Tim Davies. With that much enthusiasm and experience in the room, Tim’s gamble on the open space conference methodology was sure to pay off - even if only about a third of the participants had ever attended an unconference before."

Library Facebook page

Library Facebook page - what to put on it?
By philipbradley
Thanks to Ms Sarah I discovered a really interesting blog post from David Lee King called What can you do with a Facebook Page? He discusses his library's page on Facebook - the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library and briefly covers what is included in it and what he'd like to do with it. Great to read, and none of the 'Oh, we don't allow Facebook in our library' rubbish!
