LTAIG is considering offering preconference sessions the day before.  Please contribute to the discussion; what do you want and where do you want it?

  1. Thanks for posting this, Heather! I`m hoping we can get some traffic happening on the discussion board. I`ve been to three conferences before, and highly recommend the experience.

    I have just registered to volunteer as a convenor. I`ve applied to convene on Friday, which means I will be able to attend on Saturday. Unless something comes up work-wise, and it conflicts, I plan on

  2. I just got approval to attend Friday, yay! Nice to have more than one business/special library related session, as compared to the last one I attended 2 years ago. The keynote & closing look great but can’t go with a Friday-only ticket (unless lots of people don’t buy tickets) and can’t justify a full conference ticket to my boss. Beats a kick in the Dewey with a frozen boot.

  3. I know I’m late to the thread, but I wanted to point out a few highlights for the conference. From the descriptions, it sounds like there are going to be a lot of interesting sessions on current issues like ebooks, copyright, and open data — and also the timeless art of reference services!

    For LTAs especially, note that Christina Neigel from UFV’s Library Tech program is presenting two sessions: “Shape Shifting: Library Education, Work and Expectations for the Future”, and “Future by Design: building creativity and innovation in a library culture”. I also know there are techs presenting Saturday afternoon in “Don’t Be a barrier: Emotional Intelligence Approach to Customer Service” and “Speed Mentoring for Library Professionals” (that second one is me!).
