ALA Anaheim

What a great ALA conference! Mom came along and hung out at the pool, and we managed to sneak in a bit of fun in between conference sessions (a couple of nice meals, and a bus tour of the California beach scene).

I focused on attending sessions related to business librarianship, but came away with many great ideas for the library as a whole, including:
  • Story arcs for more engaging bibliographic instruction sessions
  • Web 2.0 for libraries, including social bookmarking, libguide subject pages, and blogging.
  • A resource page devoted to demographics
  • New, low-cost, user-friendly GIS options for libraries
We'll see how many ideas JCKL can implement!
