Ideathons

More coming soon!

Join us to explore adult learning in public libraries!

Our last Ideathon was on October 20, 2017 at METRO in NYC. You can read more about the event and our findings.

Over the next year, we'll be hosting three ideathons in partnership with public libraries located around the country. These half-day events are designed to surface and document ideas, input, and feedback from library administrators and frontline staff – reference, adult education, and technology librarians – as we build and iterate on the Reading List for Life.

Ideathons will ensure that both the technical and social architecture of the Reading List will be guided by the public library community and designed with different library needs and workflows in mind.

Ideathons are hosted by the Reading List for Life, The Open Syllabus Project, Columbia University, the Metropolitan New York Library Council, and Project Information Literacy, and funded by the Sloan Foundation. If you're interested in joining an event, or would like to suggest a library venue, send us an email!
