C304 - Hack the Library: App Building Competition2:45 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Libraries are constantly evolving, for example, incorporating creative spaces within learning commons and makerspaces. This involves engaging audiences in new ways and advocating for innovative learning and literacy technologies. Hackathons are programming or design competitions to create new apps or tools. The Hack the Library 2015 App Hackathon at Adelphi University will help in this transformative period by providing different perspectives from the library's primary users. The goal for the competition is to generate ideas (rather than completed apps) for any utility applications or mobile or desktop games that can be used in the library. This presentation details the process of organizing an academic library hackathon, including recommendations for implementation, getting university support, and le- gal considerations. Apps pitched at the hackathon are also presented, as are suggestions for creating a successful event.
