I’m at the airport, waiting for our flight to Kansas City to arrive and then we’ll get on and head back to Kansas. I’m hanging out with four other fellow Kansas librarians/tech staff (awesome!). What a conference. I think I’m going to hold off and write a reflection post this weekend about the conference, but since I blogged so many sessions, I wanted to post a recap post that pulls all my notes together, linked in one place. Liveblogging was fun. And seeing so many friends and library colleagues and meeting new ones was even better. I’ll leave the reflection at that for the moment.
Many of these posts are rough and I will go back in and add links later, and hopefully find other blog summaries from the sessions. Maybe I’ll even find the time to locate other sessions’ notes and at least read through them.
Without further ado then, here’s all the different session notes I was able to take throughout the conference:
