The Libraryhack competition, run by National and State Libraries Australasia, provided the Australian library sector with the opportunity to interact with developers and artists and work in new ways to enhance the role of libraries in the community. It also provided valuable insight into how our users wish to interact with our collections, our data, and our libraries. Finally, it challenged us to embrace what will be the fundamentally collaborative nature of the future library. This paper will showcase some of the applications and mashups created, explore marketing and promotion outcomes, successful strategies to build staff engagement and positive collaborative relationships with participants in the competition.
