#notatAASL, no worries!

I was among the fortunate who were able to attend the AASL National Conference in Louisville this week. We are all fortunate that a dedicated and hardworking social media squad had our backs.  So whether you suffered FOMO over sessions you couldn’t fit in, or couldn’t get into, or if you couldn’t attend onsite, you are covered.

SLJ Leadership Summit: Equity and Access for All–the Highlights

The focus of this year’s event was Equity and Access for All: Igniting Stakeholders for Success. Our friends at SLJ curated a truly inspiring opportunity to learn and share, gathering an impressive group of thought leaders […]

Essential Conference Tips: An Infographic

At this point in my travel career, I’ve learned a bit about how to do library conferences with fewer pain points. On the plane to ALA Orlando 2016, and at lunch in the hotel before I got my room, I shared my tips with a few friends who offered additional crowd-sourced advice. If conference travel […]

Blast from the past (20 years back at NJASL)

Please forgive this shameless self-promotion.  The NJASL folks dug up some blasts from the past for their 100th anniversary celebration. I was both shocked and so pleased to see what I looked like during a radio theater event nearly 20 years ago and about 20 pounds ago.  (Check about 19 minutes in for my appearance.)

On returning from Doha

I was honored to be asked to keynote at last week’s IASL Conference in Doha, Qatar–The Shifting Sands of School Librarianship.

Ogilvy notes: an inspiration for student creation?

Slideshow of Ogilvy drawings shared on Huffington Post

As I was looking for more information on Howard Rheingold’s book yesterday, I discovered the Ogilvy notes for his book launch from the SXSW Conference recently held in Austin. I’ve noticed these clever drawings from the ad agency artist team before, but discovering an archive that includes the previous conference as well, made me really […]

Library 2.011: Not live, but very much alive and free

Last week many of us had the opportunity to attend the free, online, global conference, Library 2.011.  But if school or sleep or life in general prevented you from attending a few sessions, the good news is they are all archived as a rich legacy of this inaugural event.  (Thank you Steve Hargadon and San […]

Library 2.011

Even before I process and share all I learned at AASL, I must share about this week’s Library 2.011. Scheduled for November 2nd through the 4th (depending on where you are), the line-up for this free, international event, sponsored by San Jose University, is going to be outstanding. Register here Steve Hargadon, conference organizer and […]

OneBookOneConference: Join the discussion on The Shallows

Every other year, when AASL comes around, I get excited about the idea being able to think and grow with our people.  Though Minneapolis is a couple of months away, no need to wait. Start Conference early by joining the AASL Conference Ning and by joining the discussion on the provocative OneBookOneConference selection, Pulitzer Prize […]
