On Thursday I’ll be talking about bookeleteer at Be2camp Brum 2010. Be2camp Brum is organised by Rob Annable of Axis Design Architects and is described as “an ‘unconference’ about social media, digital tools and the built environment”.

Be2camp Brum 2010 builds on the success of Be2camp Brum 2009 which explored the relationship between digital technologies and the built environment.

Part of the agenda this year will aim to explore the possibilities for the new Library of Birmingham building and discuss how digital tools might change the way we experience a 21st century library. I’ll be talking about how bookleteer might contribute to these changes and possibilities, especially in relation to library archives.
