TSRT 2008 Spring Meeting

What a good conference!! I have a lot of new ideas to take back to work (like barcoding DVD's inside to force people to check for a disc at CKI and CKO). Like it's ok to have teachable moments at the catalog rather than dumbing it down (or googling it up, whichever). Like there are a lot of us out there struggling with the aboutness and itness of things and how to explain that to non-librarians let alone make it useful to them. Like Gresham's Law and precision and recall, each of which will come in very handy when trying to explain to the PTB why libraries matter and what what catalogers do matters...

Just getting home after a side-trip to see my mom & brother. If you've never been to Aurora's Leadership Center, and the opportunity arises - go see the place. Stay the night - preferably when the weather is nice enough to explore the grounds. Nice facility, comfy bed, great wireless in the main facility. Only drawback - no Dr Pepper products. If you're a Pepsi drinker, you've got it made in the shade...

And yes, Deirdre, I really WILL blog about the dangerous ideas session from PLA soon :)
