This year’s library services conference was packed with current topics of interest, technology integration, software demos, exciting upcoming titles, and author speaks. After a pleasant welcome from Barbara Spripling and a riveting lecture by keynote Dr. Marc Aronson, librarians scattered. Hour-long workshops for librarians and by librarians / publishers followed. There were so many interesting workshops to choose from, it was difficult to attend just one in a time slot! The coolest conference wrap-up was author speed-dating. Though it was a bit unorganized and we were hounded by the microphone, hearing the authors speak about their books and upcoming projects in a small setting was enlightening. I definitely heard about a few books that would make it to my personal shelf asap! Author signings followed. I had never been to this particular conference before and so cannot compare it with last year’s, but it was certainly worthy of professional development hours.
