So this is kinda of embarrassing... but I'm going to ALA MW for the 1st time (just for the day) & I have mobility issues. I can walk & stand, but not for long periods of time without pain. Will there be carts or anything like that? I hate to make a fuss b/c I look OK even tho' I've had surgery & whatnot.
I've never been to an ALA Annual or Midwinter Conference. I have the opportunity to go to Midwinter because it's nearby. Is it worthwhile, or is mainly exhibits? (I recently renewed my membership). Thoughts?
It seems like every time I go to ALA's website, something about the design makes me sad. Today, it was when I looked at the page for the current winner of the Printz book award. http://www.ala.org/ala...
Does anyone know if there'll be a satellite registration location at ALA? I know some locations (Anaheim & Chicago?) have had one in the past, but I'm not sure if there's one in NOLA or not (I have my badge, will just need to pick stuff up - I'm hoping maybe I won't need to trek to the convention center Friday after I get in.)
Have you all talked about this already? http://www.npr.org/templat... Some of the framing/statements made my head 'xplody. IT guy for a library said (re: ebooks/"digital age"): "In the current climate, libraries worry they'll become obsolete." ORLY?
