The 2010 American Library Association Conference was held last week in Washington, DC. Here are some links to various sessions and presentations:
- A summary of the LITA (Library and Information Technology Association) Top Tech Trends panel. The live blog and video of the session are also available.
- “What is your library doing about emerging technologies?“, presented by LITA.
- A list of programmes presented by ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries), with links to some of the PowerPoint slides for each session.
The ALA Annual Conference is organised quite differently to Australian library conferences (apart from being much, much bigger – there were 26,201 attendees at this year’s conference!) There isn’t a single programme which all the sessions are part of. Rather, each Division of ALA organises their own programme. This means there are dozens of sessions all running at the same time at several different venues. It can be hard trying to decide which session to go to.
