Erika Rux (Librarian at Concordia College’s Ylvisaker Library) and I were able to attend the Internet Librarian 2009 Conference last week in balmy Monterey, California.
Pictured here are Brenda Hough and Erika having fabulous desserts after a long day of sessions!
One of the hallmarks of IL is networking between attendees — a way to catch up with old friends, and to meet new people face-to-face. Old Monterey, on the bay, is a small town, so the conference flows easily from the conference center to the restaurants, pubs, and outdoor plazas of the area.
For more information about the sessions — most of which were being streamed — go to the bloggers and presenters who captured the sessions and shared their slide-presentations. Bloggers to check include Sarah Houghton-Jan, Bobbi Newman, David Lee King, Matt Hamilton, Buffy Hamilton, Michael Porter, Jason Griffey, … and many more.
On Twitter, check out the nearly 5000 tweets under #il2009.
It is an exciting Conference and one I look forward to attending in the future. Along with Computers in Libraries (east coast; spring conference), Internet Librarian is one of the most stimulating and energizing conferences available!
