Librarians Converge on Anaheim (#ALA2008)

By on June 26, 2008

ALA2008 Logo It is time for the Annual American Library Association convention. Our 65,000 member organization meets every June in some large city in the United States and this year we are in the home of Disneyland for ALA 2008. This year is great for me because I could drive to the convention and there isn’t a time difference. Twitter has also played a role in my pre-conference activity and excitment. Over the course of the last 18 months I’ve been using Twitter, quite a few librarians have jumped on board and become active users. What has been particularly exciting is getting to know many of these (young) librarians virtually and now possibly meeting them in person for the first time. Fun. You can track some of the conversation on Summize or my Twitter feed. If you’re a visual type person, you can track images on Flickr too.

Over the next few days I plan to blog some of the activities, which is a slight diversion from my normal posts. Here is my schedule for the weekend. Enjoy.
