Mash time!

Wordle: Mashed Library Pancakes and Mash interestsThe ‘meat’ in the sandwich of Pancakes and Mash (if that’s not too unpleasant a culinary mixed metaphor) will be the six practical mashing workshops—three in the morning, three in the afternoon—that form the bulk of our programme.

Each of the six workshop sessions will have its own resident mashup expert(s). Following the ‘unconference’ spirit of Mashed Library, the experts’ job will not be to give a traditional presentation or to lead the workshop, but to act as a catalyst for spontaneous group discussion and creativity.

That’s the idea, anyway.

Here are the six workshops we have planned. They’re all listed on the programme:

  1. “We Can Haz Ur Data!?” with Alex Bilbie & Nick Jackson, University of Lincoln
  2. “Using Web2.0 tools to save libraries” with Gary Green, Surrey County Council. (Gary’s also giving the keynote presentation in the morning)
  3. “Metadata Forum: building a community around metadata” with Stephanie Taylor, UKOLN
  4. “From zero to hero: building a simple library web app in under an hour” with Julian Cheal, UKOLN
  5. “Mash for lunch” with Alison McNab, De Montfort University / “Across the divide: how geeks and non geeks can have meaningful conversations with each other, and how we’re all the same, really” with Stephanie Taylor, UKOLN
  6. “Mangling MARC and Munging Metadata” with Owen Stephens, Owen Stephens Consulting

For inspiration, the word cloud on this blog post was created from all the answers people gave on the Pancakes and Mash booking form, to the question: “What subjects, technologies or aspects of Mashed Library are you interested in?

  3. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
