STS Signal, Blogging SLA
Next week is the 95th annual conference of SLA—that's the Special Libraries Association for those of you who prefer the traditional name—and several Information Today, Inc. editors and writers will be there ready to blog. The official dates are June 5-10, 2004, but the Board of Directors holds meetings both before and after the main conference. The Live from Nashville blog (http://www.infotodayblog.com) will cover as many aspects of the conference as the bloggers can handle. That would include association business meetings, conference sessions, the exhibit floor, and social events. Plus, we’ll have backup from some editors not in Nashville.I'll be attending the SLA conference, and am looking forward to the many good sessions, panels, and meetings, as well as some well-deserved downtime with a few good friends who also attend the conference.
Why blog SLA? According to Tina Creguer, director, communications, ProQuest Information and Learning, “The Special Libraries Association conference is an exciting event, with news, gatherings, and an exchange of ideas that help shape the library world. The blog hastens the speed of information sharing, and we’re always enthusiastic about improving access to information.” ProQuest is sponsoring the ITI Live from Nashville blog.
