Library Camp Glasgow is an unconference. The Twitter hashtag is #libcampgla



The second Library Camp Glasgow took place on Saturday 8th November 2014 at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow,. 



Library Camp Glasgow is indebted to hosts, Glasgow Life, and to sponsors SLIC, SALCTG, MMITS and CILIPS.


Session pitches

There were sessions on CILIP Registration, Innovative user education, Internet privacy, Advocacy, CILIPS West, Do you practice what you preach?, 23 Librarians live, and Cross-network collaboration. Two groups also toured the Mitchell Library.


MmITS Minute of Madness

A 60 second rant to get something library-related off your chest! The prize of a Kindle Fire, generously donated by MmITS, was won by Jennifer Higgins with her rant on gender stereotypes.



As well as the prize for the best rant, there were prizes for the best home-made name badges. The winners were Karly Walters-Smith and Sharron Wilson. Annette Thain won the Library Camp Bingo competition.
