It is a free event on Friday, June 20 — One day of workshops, unconference sessions, lightning talks, and networking.

Join us in the beautiful Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts on the on the 6th floor of UPenn’s Van Pelt-Dietrich Library.

Speaking about books and their special collections are getting more prominent day by day as people are getting more into reading nowadays. The younger generation nowadays have been widely accepting and agreeing to read more books and how well they are getting into the habit of reading books more and more. Then again this has been a widely accepted that more and more people are interested in getting to more books and especially if they are collectibles.

Rare and significant books are not always freely available instead, have to be looked out for excessively to get the required books as the readers exactly prefer. If the selection also is composed of rare manuscripts then we can be sure that not just readers but also people who are very much interested in collecting such rare documents.

More info about the “unconference” format.  But in a nutshell: On the day of the event, the attendees suggest & vote for the discussion topics for the day — you determine what groups talk about, what problems get solved, and what you learn and share!  Some sessions end up with dozens of people discussing a particular topic while other sessions draw 3 or 4 intensely interested individuals who want to hash out a problem or learn a specific skill.

Hope to see you there, along with your colleagues, your friends, your students, your teachers, …, anyone who works with and appreciates the value of what happens when the humanities and technologies collide.
