Come join us in Puerto Rico, November 12-14, for the first THATCamp in the broader Caribbean. We are hoping to bring together librarians and scholars from in and outside of the Caribbean to talk about the future of digital scholarship in and for the Caribbean. We expect to cover five main areas in our 'unconference': Scholarly communications, new media, digital preservation, technology in the classroom and computational methodologies. Our event precedes the ASA conference to be held in San Juan, PR, and we have partnered with them to make it easy for ASA participants to come to Mayagüez.

A THATCamp is not your typical conference. If you have never been to one, be ready for a wonderful experience. To learn more about our THATCamp visit our website. [link: http://caribbean2012.thatcamp.org/ ]

Registration for THATCampCaribe 2012 is free and open, and begins April 17th. For questions please contact Alex Gil at alexgil@virginia.edu.
