Counting down to THATCamp NE 2013 @ UConn

Things are starting to really move here at UConn for THATCamp New England. The schedule so far is looking great! You can see all the developments here on our website. You’ll notice that we already have our keynote speaker, Dan Cohen, the Founding Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America, and a number of amazing workshops.

But of course, THATCamp is your camp. We need you to propose sessions! It’s easy to do. First you need to register after which you’ll receive your username and password for our website. With that, log into our THATCampNE website (newengland2013.thatcamp.org). Then create a new “POST” with the category of “session-proposal”. Be daring and add one of these sub-categories: “session-make”, “session-play”, “session-teach”, “session-talk”. Don’t worry if you’re new to WordPress. Check out “Writing Posts” (codex.wordpress.org/Writing_Posts) or our Propose (newengland2013.thatcamp.org/propose/) page.

We have reserved rooms at the Nathan Hall Inn and Conference Center with a THATCamp group rate of $144, which includes free parking. The cutoff date for the group rate is September 17, 2013. Nathan Hall is about a 5 minute walk from Homer Babbidge Library. There are also other options including bed and breakfasts in the area. Take a look at our Lodging page (newengland2013.thatcamp.org/travel/lodging/).

If you’re not far from UConn, we have directions including maps of campus on our website (newengland2013.thatcamp.org/travel/directions/). On Friday, the closest parking garage is the South Garage, which is located next to the Gampel Sports Complex off of Stadium Road. The South Parking Garage only accepts cash. There is also a parking garage in the new downtown area of Storrs, which is located off of Dog Lane. This Storrs Center Parking Garage is about a 10 minute walk from Homer Babbidge Library. On Saturday, you can park for free on campus!
