James H. ALA Midwinter

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 17:48:44 +0000

ALA Mid-Winter 2017, a conference of discovery. Three days in which our hero finds his pack and by extension finds himself (in a bar that stocks 60 different whiskeys). When I say ‘find my pack’, I don’t mean figuring out who they are, but actually WHERE they are. I’m a member of ALA’s RUSA and […]

MBL’s at ALAMW in Atlanta

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 19:57:00 +0000

My conference experience revolved around two specific foci. I was recently elected as a member-at-large of SustainRT, the Sustainability Round Table of ALA.  My duties with this group include arranging programming for our sessions at ALA Annual, so I did a bit of networking to identify topics and speakers that might be of interest at […]

Rebecca at Moore Elementary School Career Day 2017

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 16:33:49 +0000

Last week, I had the opportunity to speak with three Fourth grade classes at Moore Elementary School for Career Day. Joining a group of professionals including a police man, an EMT, a chemist, a World Relief High Point employee, Mooney (of Mooney’s Mediterranean Cafe), and many other talented people, I represented librarians and archivists to the best […]

As Jeff noted in his post, I got sick at Midwinter, just like I did two years ago in Chicago. However, this time I waited until Sunday to be laid low by a brutal cold, and I did not ask Jeff to mercy kill me. So, not as bad, right? Luckily, I did manage to […]

Jeff at ALA Midwinter 2017

For the 2017 Midwinter conference in Atlanta I made the strange decision to pack the back seat of my car with a 2-year-old and a 2-month-old, seated beside one another, facing in opposite directions but unanimous in their displeasure. My wife was better-behaved. Nevertheless the arrangement proved untenable and I ditched them somewhere outside Alpharetta, where […]

Atlanta at Night – view from my hotel room As reported capably by Thomas, much of my ALA Midwinter weekend was filled with meeting and event obligations that I have as a LITA board member. These always include 2 multi-hour board meetings, a joint chairs gathering, LITA Happy Hour (a networking event, it is legit!), […]

Lauren at ALA Midwinter 2017 in Atlanta

Between numerous required committee meetings on metadata and advocacy, I learned about Summon & Primo integration and discussed ebook record problems in several venues (exhibits, a session, a dinner, and a committee meeting). Discovery Tools from Ex Libris: Summon and Primo are gradually being integrated, which I likened to EBL and Ebrary integration. I sent […]

Thomas @ Midwinter 2017

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 16:02:22 +0000

ALA Midwinter has become a vendor exhibition with some committee meetings filling in around the edges. If you’ve ever chuckled at a poster or coffee mug that says, “I survived another meeting that should have been an e-mail”? That. Maybe we want an annual vendor exhibition, but I have trouble seeing the continuing need for […]

NC-LITe Fall 2016

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 16:48:20 +0000

On Friday, December 16th, Librarians from Elon University hosted the Fall meeting of NC-LITe. NC-LITe is a twice-annual meeting of academic librarians in North Carolina that focuses on library instruction and instructional technology. We met at Elon’s Moseley Center, a perfect venue for the meeting. Rosalind Tedford, Joy Gambill, Kathy Shields, and I were all […]

Thomas @ CNI

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 13:26:05 +0000

I know what you’re thinking: “Hey, Thomas is at ALA, not CNI. The poor guy is so confused” (or words to that effect). Which I usually am, but on opening up my note taking app to jot down a few things about Midwinter, I found my notes on CNI meetings from back in December. Consider […]
