Here are a few highlights and thoughts:
- Opening session with Nicholas Carr (author of "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains")
- Meeting librarians from all over the world--and seeing some old friends!
|Me and my pal Shawna from Grad School|
- The learning exploratorium--seeing all sorts of new and exciting ideas!
- One of my favorite places was the Expo Hall--the vendors had a ton of great stuff to show--and give away!
- I attended a great session on English Language Learners in the School Library--and have committed myself to purchasing more books in Native Languages.
and....my very favorite thing....
