The first Mashed Library UK event, organised by Owen Stephens, was held at Birkbeck College in November 2008 with the aim of "bringing together interested people and doing interesting stuff with libraries and technology". Further details about the 2008 event are available here: http://mashedlibrary.ning.com
The University of Huddersfield is proud to be hosting the second event, dubbed "Mash Oop North!", which is being sponsored by Talis. The event will take place in Huddersfield on July 7th.
Mashed Library is aimed at librarians, library developers and library techies who want to learn more about Web 2.0 & 3.0, Library 2.0, creating mash-ups and generally doing interesting/cool/useful things with data. In particular, we expect the event to generate the following outcomes for all attendees:
1) Awareness of the latest developments in library technology
2) Application of Web 2.0 technologies in a library context
3) Community building and networking
4) Learn new skills and develop existing ones
The event is primarily an "unconference", so attendees will be encouraged to participate throughout the day. Further information is available on the event blog: http://mashlib09.wordpress.com
A small token registration of fee of £15 is the only charge for the event. Places are limited to around 60 delegates, so we would advise booking early to avoid disappointment!
