A couple of weeks ago, three library school classmates and I attended the UnHushed Conference 2 at UNCG in Greensboro, North Carolina. It’s just an hour away, so we drove over together on the morning of April 6 to attend this conference, organized by a group of students at UNCG’s Department of Library and Information Studies.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, who was fascinating! (I ran into her a few days later in one of the libraries at Duke University, where I work, and had a nice conversation with her!) After that, I had a hard time choosing which sessions to attend, but ended up with three great choices, “The Human Library,” “The YouTube Librarian,” and “Feng Shui: The Art of Balancing a Library.” They were all so interesting, it’s impossible to pick a favorite. I took away great ideas from each one. I also met some really nice people, from UNCG library students to librarians from area libraries. The conversation on our ride home to the Triangle was a lively one, because we enjoyed sharing information and impressions from our different sessions.

My iPhone photos from the conference are here.
