Shanachietour Down Under – Erik Boekesteijn and Jaap van de Geer – DOK

Showed their US tour video, introducing everyone to the concept of the Shanachie tour.

Jaap then started filming Erik talking, whilst also showing it live on the big screen. Deer caught in the headlights is what comes to mind when looking at the big screen. Erik spoke about the need for librarians in the Netherlands, and encouraged attendees to consider heading over!

Gave background to the project. Decided they wanted to show how Web 2.0 can be used to create content, easily and quickly. Was glad to be able to watch the video interview of Paul Holdengraber again – very inspiring that guy.

Back to live filming and interviewing people in the audience. Asking about the role of libraries in education and the importance f imagination and information. They then showed the video of Imaginon, of the mobile games box and of the Domincan Uni students perspective on the future of libraries.

Then interviewed a few more librarians about the library of the future and the ideal library in less than 10 words. They finished with part of the video on DOK.
