Thanks to J for posting about the conference. J has also posted some on her own blog.
Here’s what I posted on my news research blog a couple days ago:
The News Division blog I started a few years ago for one of the SLA conventions is still available for posting from attendees, but no one has updated the blog in a long time. I’ve been tempted to at least add job postings there but since I’m not really a member any more (despite occasional contributions to the listserv), have hesitated to do it. If anyone attending the conference is reading this and wants to post to the blog, email me and I’ll set you up.
The News Division, however, has a great program for the annual meeting. Hope everyone’s having fun! (I would love to be a fly on the wall at this morning’s Future of News Libraries seminar just to hear Mark Hannan, Jr, Reference Desk Director at USA Today. His father was my beloved boss, research director at the Washington Post, long ago.)
For news of the meetings, InfoToday’s Blog is again covering the convention from inside. The buzz from yesterday and today is mostly about Al Gore, who did a book signing and a keynote speech. Of course there’s also an SLA blog by attending members, including, I hope, some News Division members.
