President’s Meeting in Columbus, Aug 2016

Ok, here I am in Columbus, Ohio attending IFLA‘s 82nd World Library & Information Congress and feeling really guilty that I have not posted & connected since February!  Not because I didn’t have things to say, but for various reasons.  So if Andrew Pace can get back to blogging, I felt I better too!  Thanks Andrew for pushing me!  🙂

A lot of great stuff is happening at this IFLA meeting with the theme – Connections, Collaboration & Community.  Here’s a few things:

  • New Continuing Professional Development Guidelines from on of the standing committees I belong to, CDPWL.  And we had a great discussion of those guidelines in our session on Tues.  We’ll be doing another one at next year’s conference in Poland.
  • President’s Meeting with great speakers (session 092) — I tweeted a lot using #IFLAPres & there is also a Facebook page you can like & learn about future meetings.  BTW, in his plenary session this morning David Ferriero, who blogs as AOTUS, mentioned one of my tweets from the Monday morning’s President’s meeting!  I nearly fell off my chair!
  • Knowledge Management section, which I’ve been a member of for many years, just published a book highlighting wonderful speaker presentations over the last number of years — Knowledge Management in Libraries & Organizations

Hope to share more soon!
