    • unConference: session 1 | CJ de Jong | Little Theatre

      Description: Are you looking for something different in a conference? Why not take advantage of this unique opportunity to collaborate with other resource sharing experts? We do away with stage and speaker, instead we are providing a venue for ILL practitioners to identify problems or develop projects to work on during, and potentially after, the conference. In Part A, we’ll brainstorm ideas and provide an opportunity for people to discuss and identify which are of interest to them. In Part B, the following day, you will have an opportunity to work together in small groups on your chosen projects. At the end of the conference, participants will have a chance to share their project with all attendees; maybe next year, you’ll be presenting the final outcome!
