I’m heading to Washington on Wednesday for ALA. I’m a newbie to that particular conference, never having had the budget at my small, rural library to justify my attendance.
I’m heading out there thanks in large part to the folks at WebJunction; I’m working with the Rural Library Sustainability Forum, and I’ll be helping at the day-long pre-conference event on Friday.
I’ve also signed on to be one of the PLA bloggers, so tune in to the PLA blog, too.
At the moment, I’m compiling the vast quantities of paper available through ALA to guide folks through the conference. Some of the stuff is more helpful than others. The Itinerary Planner is swell. The hotel/bus/metro map is not so much. (An overlap would be terrific, for those of us who aren’t as familiar with Washington and where the stops might be in relation to the hotels….or anything else, for that matter.)
At any rate, stay tuned for tales from the road to ALA.
