Lightning Talks to start the day at Libcampoz 2016

Do you have a library story, project, or initiative you’d like to share with other information professionals in an informal environment?

Why not give a three-minute lightning talk at Library Camp Australia 2016?

We will welcome any contribution, whether you’ve given a public talk before or not, and regardless of what type of information organisation you work or study in.

Feel free to give a short talk on anything you’ve achieved or lessons you’ve learnt. The lightning talks will be organised on the day – all you need to do is turn up!

Theme: anything to do with libraries or information management!

The only rule? Keep your talk to three minutes. We will be cutting you short and moving on to the next person at exactly 3 minutes.

If you are interested in doing this, please sign up on the session suggestions Google Doc
