Science Boot Camp for Librarians (West) is coming to the University of Colorado Boulder – June 19-21, 2013.
Plan to attend the inaugural Science Boot Camp for Librarians (West) in beautiful Boulder, Colorado! Science Boot Camps for Librarians are immersive 2 ½ day events featuring educational presentations delivered by scientists. Based on the successful annual event in Massachusetts, the Western version follows a similar format and will cover these 3 science topics: Bioinformatics, Environmental Sciences & GIS, and Physics. In addition, CU Boulder Librarians will give a Data Management Workshop, there will be interesting keynote speakers and we’ll have a panel on women in science. And, of course, there will be time to network with fellow “campers.”
Cost: For (dorm) lodging, meals and instructional content: $250.00. For commuters: $100 (What a deal!)
Registration: opens April 15th, 2013.
Audience: Science librarians, medical librarians, data management people, LIS students. You, we hope.
