Join UC Libraries for THATCamp University of Cincinnati, an unconference, which is an open meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels and interests gather to learn and to build together in sessions proposed on the spot. By practice, THATCamps are open and online. Participants make sure to share their notes, documents, pictures and other materials from discussions before and after the event on the Web and via social media.

Sessions for THATCamp University of Cincinnati will be determined during the opening session on May 4; however, a preliminary schedule has been devised and posted online at http://ucincinnati2015.thatcamp.org/schedule/.
