hi – 27mar

Hi. I’ll be at the Rhode Island Library Association conference this upcoming week and then I’m done with library-related travelling until ALA, and then I’m really done until September. I had a chance to wander around the basement of the Library of Congress with the THOMAS webmaster [who I met in one of my online communities, don’t tell me that technology can’t take you places] and hid out from the rain at one of the DC public libraries [which was very nice and welcoming]. I met a group of librarians who are grappling with becoming part of a consortium, and I talked to some library staff who were very skeptical about technology as i tried to explain why I thought some of it was worthwhile.
