Here’s the SCARLA poster:
That being said, I attended many different but interesting programs:
- First Steps Toward RDA
- Conversation Starter: Book Group Hits and Misses
- Reference 2.0 in a Flash (presented by four Rutgers MLIS students, including SCARLA’s vice-president, Kristen Mapes)
- PA Forward | Pennsylvania Libraries: Building Opportunities for Libraries
- Outreach in the City: Programs for Kids
- Librarians in the 21st Century: Multicultural Leadership
- Do’s and Don’ts of Library Programming for the 20s/30s Crowd (via live-tweeting)
- ACRL National and You
- I Can Borrow What?
- Library Laws You Need to Know
- The Year’s Best Graphic Novels 2012
I also toured the Exhibits Hall, perused the poster sessions, conversed about trends with new and veteran librarians, celebrated hard work during the NJLA Awards Ceremony, listened to Laura Lippman’s keynote address, and (accidentally) ate lunch with Stephen Abram, the Wednesday keynote speaker. (Let that be a lesson in the importance of speaking up and networking.) I left Atlantic City Wednesday afternoon with a brain full of new ideas and thoughts, and a greater sense of the LIS professional community.
Who’s going to ALA Midwinter in Philadelphia this January?
