    1st ACRL Idaho Unconference

    A group of 20 librarians, library staff, library students and others gathered at the Idaho State University Library in Meridian for the 1st ACRL Idaho unconference on Friday, July 14th. Topics discussed ranged from the usability of finding tools like LibGuides to ways the library can promote the care of the whole student to different types of literacy to open educational resources.

    Participants were given a tour of the Treasure Valley Anatomy & Physiology Laboratories which included demonstrations of the virtual lab and a walkthrough of the cadaver lab. 

    It was a lot of fun to be able to take time away from the day to day work schedule to discuss and reflect upon issues relevant to academic libraries. I'm looking forward to the next unconference!
