Abstract:

Purpose – To highlight content of interest to this journal’s readership that promotes current thinking and activities in information technology.

Design/methodology/approach – A selective conference report of the annual meeting of the American Library Association and a pre-conference.

Findings – The largest conference of librarians, the variety of programs, activities, exhibit halls, creates one of the best professional development opportunities for librarians. Attracting librarians from all sectors and work environments from around the globe, this conference is hard to describe in a brief way except to say it is an experience. Documenting relevant programs about information technology was the goal of this contribution.

Practical implications – An alternative to not being present while gaining some information and coverage.

Originality/value – Contains information of particular interest to readers who did not attend these sessions. Introduces them to presenters and important hot topics.
