With the arrival of Memorial Day weekend, the summer officially begins. (Nevermind what the calendar says in regards to that statement.) June also means that the ALA Annual Conference is near, returning librarians to The Big Easy once more. While I will not be attending this year (and pretty sad about it too), I did want to redo something that I did last year: the ALA new conference attendee Twitter list. This was last year’s new attendee list to give you an idea of what it looked like last year and who was on it.
The list is currently empty, so I need the names of Twitter librarians who are going to their first ALA this year. I’ll be advertising it on Twitter (of course) and looking to get more names to the list. It’s a neat list especially once you get to the conference and can check out what other new people are doing. Or the more experienced attendees can check out what the new folks think and maybe invite them out to an event or two. (And ALA does keep an eye on it; well, the all seeing eye of Jenny Levine, that is.)
Otherwise, this is an open thread. Talk about conference stuff or whatever.
