ALA12: My Schedule

I've spent most of the morning cobbling together a rough schedule for events and sessions I'll want to attend during ALA Annual this weekend (YES, THIS WEEKEND. I can't believe it's already here).

So here's where I'm planning to be, if you want to stalk me or something:

4:00pm-5:15pm Opening General Session
5:30pm-Midnight DISNEYLAND

8:00am-10:00am Embedded Librarian Best Practices
10:30am-11:30am David Weinberger
11:30am-1:30pm EXHIBIT HALL
1:30pm-4:00pm Reference Resurrected OR Current State of Academic Librarians (undecided)
4:00pm-5:30pm Ebrary
5:30pm-7:30pm iSchool Happy Hour
7:30pm-10:30pm Newbie/Veteran Tweet-up
10:30pm-Midnight After Hours

10:30am-Noon Diving in and Learning to Swim as a New Distance Education Librarian
1:30pm-3:30pm Revitalizing the Research Process
4:00pm-5:30pm Philosophical, Religious and Theological Studies Discussion Group
7:00pm-9:00pm Hack Lib School/Boing Boing Meet-up

8:00am-10:00am Virtual Faiths: Cooperative Digitization Projects

I am so so excited! Hoping to learn a lot of stuff and meet a lot of people.

Let me know if you'll be there and we can meet up!

I'll probably be pretty active on Twitter while I'm there, so look me up there. My handle is @keegzzz!


  1. I have only been to one ALA convention and I couldn't afford any of the sessions, so my free exhibit hall pass had to suffice.

    For all my grievances with ALA, I do plan on attending 2014 in Vegas. I really want all of my librarian friends to go, so we can party it up together. The way I keep talking it up, I think they're expecting me to get hitched to some random librarian I meet... that ought to make for a memorable convention for everyone.

    1. It definitely is pricey, but I figure I should go just to go since it's my first year in the field and it's only an hour drive from home. I am mostly looking forward to hanging out with people from my cohort though!
      2014 in Vegas sounds great! I probably won't do next year since my library is hosting the annual conference for the Association of Christian Librarians and I want to be involved in that. But you can count on me for partying in Vegas!
