Conference Time!

Yes, it’s that time of year again. So many conferences, so little time and money! It’s amazing how energized you can be after a conference and how drained! The OLA (Ontario Library Association) Super Conference has just wrapped up. It was a great conference, so I thought I’d share what I’ve learned. I won’t blog about all of my sessions – I’ll do highlights instead. I hope to mull the sessions over a little more and may have more to post on the sessions later. Here’s a list of the sessions I attended (unfortuantely, I missed a couple due to illness):

  • Is Social Software Too Social? – Rob Hyndman, Matthew Ingram, Nora Young
  • Information Is Not Enough: Shaping the User Experience – Joan Frye Williams
  • Search and the Emerging Social Web – Tomi Poutamen
  • Not So Confidential: Exposing Web 2.0 Sites – John Blyberg
  • Digital Game-Based Learning and Information Literacy – Christy Branston
  • CODOC to LC: The Long and Winding Road – Jim Ford and Cary Daniel
  • Solutions for a New Generation – Max Valiquette
  • Top Tech Trends – Michael Stephens, Amanda Etches-Johnson, John Blyberg

The next conference scheduled – the Winter Institute for Statistical Literacy for Librarians in Edmonton.
