Butcher's paper, white-boards, post it notes, PCs....you name it we used it!
We made use of 'people', 'spaces' and 'ephemera' to encourage all the participants to take part in this relatively unexplored world of 'The UnConference'.
Feedback has been wonderful and we congratulate all attendees for their enthusiasm in making the day such a success! ....but then we always knew Librarians have never been backward in coming forward!
Leaders and facilitators emerged from a group who pretty much arrived that morning wondering what sort of day awaited them.
"I found the day incredibly beneficial, thankyou all very much for organising everything. There were a couple of web 2.0 questions that I was really hoping to get assistance with (most notably to do with building targeted RSS feeds) and they were answered in great detail from Toby's session and others. I liked the mix of having some pre-planned "hands-on" sessions and those more organic sessions that were developed on the day - it allowed for a balance between some theoretical/strategic discussions and getting to grips with the tools that enable this brave new Library 2.0 world! "
