ALA Midwinter Meeting this weekend January 12, 2008

Filed under: ALA Midwinter Meeting — edesmond @ 2:40 pm

This weekend (Jan. 11-16) ALA is holding its annual Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia. While the Annual Conference in the Summer is focused on programs, presentations, and speakers, the main focus for the Midwinter Meeting is business–many committees, divisions, and other groups hold meetings and planning sessions. However, even for those attendees who (like me) are not members of an ALA committee, there are still plenty of interesting discussion groups, meetings, and speeches to attend. Over the next few days I’ll be posting summaries of the the sessions I attend, including this morning’s fascinating discussion with FBI Agent Bassem Youssef and informative forum on telecommunications issues. Stay tuned for more about these and other topics!
