[InetBib] Call for Videos - IFLAcamp, 9-10 Aug 2012

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

gerne leite ich folgenden Call for Videos an Sie weiter. Wir freuen uns auf
Ihre Einreichungen!

Viele Grüße aus Berlin,
Sebastian Wilke
Convenor, IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group


New Professionals Special Interest Group
IFLAcamp: “New Professionals Now!”
Hämeenlinna, Finland, 9-10 August 2012

Theme and scope

IFLAcamp is the first genuine IFLA satellite unconference ever! The barcamp
style will allow for active participation of all attendees and the
inclusion of all kinds of topics related to New Professionalism, emerging
technologies and innovation in libraries that prey on your minds!

The permission to attend a conference is often connected to an accepted
paper or poster. To provide you such possibility and, at the same time,
keep the barcamp spirit alive, we have decided to give you a shot and try
something new by asking you to submit your own video proposal for IFLAcamp.

This is how it works:

   1. think of a challenging topic;
   2. record a video and explain your idea;
   3. upload it to YouTube (preferable);
   4. tag your video with IFLAcamp;
   5. be a part of IFLAcamp.

Your video proposal should be no longer than 3 to 5 minutes and start with
the following phrase: “I’m a (new) LIS professional and ...”.  It will
serve as an introduction for a discussion you are going to moderate at
IFLAcamp and, therefore, is required to be in English language.

All videos will be available for open peer review in Jan and Feb 2012: We
will publish all submissions in the NPSIG’s blog. Everybody will be invited
to give comments and take part in a voting process which will result in a
pre-selection of topics from your videos. The final IFLAcamp agenda will be
built of pre-selected proposals and spontaneous proposals on the spot. As
seats for IFLAcamp will be limited, a pre-selected proposal will give you
the further advantage of a reserved ticket.

Important deadlines

Please send the link of your video or the video itself (including topic and
tags) and additional information about yourself (name, country,
affiliation/institution, position) to be included in our blog by 31
December 2011 to npsig.ifla@xxxxxxxxxx

If access to broadband or video making tools are hampering issues for you
or you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with

We are looking forward to your proposal!

(Note: IFLAcamp is a satellite meeting which can be attended independently
from the IFLA Congress in Helsinki (however, we strongly recommend to
attend both!). Participation is planned to be free of charge. We will offer
a special price for accommodation on-site for all participants that will be
part of the registration process. All expenses, including travel,
accommodation, etc. are the responsibility of the participants. No
financial support can be provided by IFLA, but a special invitation can be
issued to presenters, if that is required. For those seeking funding
through grants or scholarships, please research this early and apply within
the deadline.)
