THATCampVA will start on Friday afternoon, April 20, with your choice of workshops. That evening we’ll gather in a nearby establishment or two or three, giving everybody a casual opportunity to see old friends or meet new ones.
THATCampVA proper — the unconference you will help us plan — will be held on Saturday, April 21 (wraps up at about 5:00 p.m.).
If you are traveling from outside of the Charlottesville area, you will probably want Maps & Directions to the University of Virginia.
The Scholars’ Lab is located in room 419, behind the café on the main floor of Alderman Library. View the Scholars’ Lab and Alderman Library (and relationship to parking) on a Google map.
Two parking garages are within easy walking distance of Alderman Library. The Central Grounds Garage offers hourly parking on both Friday and Saturday (rates). The Culbreth Road Garage is permit parking only on Friday but is free on Saturday. View the Scholars’ Lab and Alderman Library (and relationship to parking) on a Google map.
