The Conference Begins!!

The first day of the conference ...always good to see everyone turning out with their proceedings, planners and pads to face a day of sessions and networking. I love the networking part of attending conferences. I spoke at length this morning before the keynote with a librarian from a California university. We swapped "database vendor" stories and both weighed in on the fact that book budgets are dropping while electronic resource budgets are steadily growing. I believe it's happening in the public library; she let me know that it's definitely happening in academic libraries.

Coffee & Danish (a library conference tradition!) before the keynote.

Tom Hogan and Jane Dysart welcome the crowd of 800+ attendees:
