Library-related conferences, a mega-list

This came down the wire at web4lib and was too useful not to share. Library Related Conferences, from now until 2015 or so. Also this year’s past conferences. Great resource.

on the road for the next few weeks

I’ll be doing a lot of work-related travelling over the next few weeks. I encourage anyone who will be at any of these conferences to stop by and say hello.

  • Wisconsin Library Association – I’ll be doing a digital divide talk and a tech tips talk this Friday. Possibly the best conference ever, according to one blog. It’s at a weird resort-like place. I will be met at the airport by someone in a safari get-up.
  • Hawaii Library Association – Hawaii is the only US state I’ve never been to. The second to last one on my list, Alaska, I crossed off in 1997 sometime. I’ll be discussing high tech on a shoestring, and tech support tips for reference librarians on the 11th of November.
  • Michigan Library Consortium – a workshop with Aaron Schmidt and Meredith Farkas about blogs, wikis and IM. I’ll be doing the blogs part on the 15th.

Yeah, it’s a lot of travelling. I even got a new haircut. After this I’m settling down and hunkering down for the winter and focusing on writing and planning for 2007.

My ALA Schedule – ALA Chicago

In the interests of meeting up with people, and my own terrible memory, I’m putting my ALA schedule online. To find me at ALA look in whatever room the Council meetings are at, I’m generally there. I’ve also linked to it on the Unofficial ALA Conference Wiki where others are keeping their schedules.
