I believe libraries are amazing places for education, discovery, entertainment, and exploration. This is a place where I post my presentations, images, discussion topics, opinions, and videos about libraries. Please feel free to comment and create a conversation about what make libraries great!
Last week was the very successful SCLA Annual Conference in Hilton Head. There were some great speakers, concurrent sessions, and this year we had 16 poster sessions. Rivkah Sass, librarian of the year, talked to us about the importance of keeping up with new trends in the field, good customer service, and giving patrons what they want. This image was one of her powerpoint slides and it shows a trend in that iPod owners want to hear their music even in the bathroom! It is very important that people in the library profession keep up with trends, not only in librarianship, but also in general. One of the things Rivkah mentioned is that she goes to at least one non-librarian conference a year. I think this is a great idea and something I'm going to try to do myself!
