ALA starts Friday and I am really excited. There is something about hanging out with other people that "geek out" about information, technology and books that is so much fun! I am even looking forward to the car ride from Detroit. I am sure there will be a few hours of library science talk that will start me thinking! I really like to think of ALA or any conference as a great way to refresh your love of librarianship. Not only can you improve your career skills, but there are always new ideas being tossed about that are sure to get you thinking. I also like that even though ALA is a large conference, library world is small. Hang around long enough and it will feel like you met every librarian in the country!
I usually can ride the high for many weeks. Library conferences are just great ways to refresh your love of library science and service. If you can't get to ALA this week make sure you are availing yourself of the zillions of tweets, blogs, podcasts that will be filling our information world before too long!
See you in Chicago!
