California Dreaming

I’m at Internet Librarian in beautiful Monterey, California. It’s heady to be surrounded by librarians who are techie and talking about cutting edge topics: website security, digitizing local content, repositories, mobile tech….you get the idea. I’m actually presenting this year, which should be fun. I don’t present until Wednesday afternoon, so I have a few days to soak up the wisdom around me.

I’m presenting on UMR and our virtual library and the importance of information literacy. I’m co-presenting with librarians from the DeLaMare Science and Engineering Library at the University of Nevada-Reno; they’re talking about having created a hacking mentality at their campus. Should be interesting!

Meanwhile, I managed to seriously tweak my knee the day before I left, to the point where I swallowed my pride and asked for a wheelchair to help me through the airports. Yikes. Luckily, it seems to have calmed down a bit, and I just keep reminding myself to take it slow.

I’ll be blogging about some of the presentations I attend, so you can virtually attend the conference with me. The sea may call me, however, and if my knee will allow, I may take a stroll on the wharf and listen to the sea lions.
