Some of the sessions I’ve attended so far include:
- “Podcast U” pre-conference
- LITA Technology for Public Libraries interest group
- LIRT discussion about services to millennials.
One observation I’ve made in general is that my presence as a public librarian at most sessions is greatly appreciated. Apparently, librarians from public libraries are not frequent visitors to some committees/interest groups/round tables at the national level. In fact, the LITA Technology of Public Libraries group was started specifically because LITA members felt there was a need to more effectively recruit public librarians to LITA events. That being said, remember, I am new to this whole scene, so my observations may not be espoused by all.
I plan to submit an additional post on the “Podcast U” pre-conference workshop, so stay tuned. There was a lot to take in.
