Last week I traveled to Asheville for the Society of North Carolina Archivists Annual Conference held at UNC Asheville. I know you have all heard from Stephanie and Craig about their whirlwind day, so I will try to fill out the rest of the conference for you. I started my conference with a pre-conference workshop […]

Society of North Carolina Archivists Conference- Asheville

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 18:44:03 +0000

On Thursday, March 16, 2017, I had the good fortune to travel with colleagues Stephanie Bennett and Karen Feeney (WSFCPL) to Asheville for the SNCA Annual Conference. Karen was kind enough to drive us over to UNC-Asheville and back. The plenary speaker was Dr. Darin Waters, a professor at UNC-A, who spoke on the importance […]

A Whirlwind Day at SNCA 2017

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 21:40:32 +0000

This past week, I took a road trip with your pal and mine, Craig Fansler, and Karen Feeney, a special collections librarian with Forsyth County Public Libraries, up to UNC Asheville to spend a day at the Society of NC Archivists annual meeting. The meeting spanned from Wednesday to Friday, but Karen, Craig, and I […]

It’s been clear for some time now that the Music Library Association has outgrown the traditional members-take-turns-hosting-the-annual-meeting system; so this year, for the first time, we engaged an event-planning firm, who seems to have taken their cue from ALA, because we fetched up in Orlando. Besides the balmy temps, there was a second good reason […]

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

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 […]

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!), […]
