Family things kept me from blogging last week and even though you might be so over seeing posts of ALA, I wanted to share my little bit.
Orlando heat and humidity aside, ALA was fabulous. The convention center was a bit hard to navigate and I still wish these 'big' library conferences weren't quiet so 'big' but the sessions I did manage to find and get to were pretty great. I took away a lot of useful info for myself and my co-workers.
Also, there is something about being in a place with so many other people who feel just as passionately as you do about a particular subject (librarying! books!).
It's very recharging!
The (boring? ;) academic stuffs I'll save for my co-workers. You guys get to see...THE BOOKS!
In case you couldn't tell, I'm a #dramallama free blogger and while I did see and hear about 'bad' behavior, it doesn't affect me or how I blog. With that said, you may notice some duplicate copies in my pics below - not going into long explanations BUT if you want details on how or why I took home any of these copies, please ask. I strive for 100% transparency!
Ok - ON WITH THE BOOKS!
Thank the heavens for the on site Post Office!
