Science Boot Camp for Librarians (West)
Plan to attend the inaugural Science Boot Camp for Librarians (West) in beautiful Boulder, Colorado! Science Boot Camps for Librarians are immersive 2½ 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 Science & GIS, and Physics.  In addition, there 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 plenty of 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.
