Looking forward to attending OLA Super Conference (after Toronto’s big snow storm of the year*).

This year’s theme – “The Power of C – Collaboration”.

*Why is there a big snow storm before or after every OLA Super Conference?

Totally excited about webcom-Toronto. I’ll be there!

I’m looking forward to stepping up my passion at the OLA 2010 Super Conference this week.  Here’s my quasi-final schedule. (Because nothing is final when it comes to conference session selection, until 5 minutes before start time!)

Looking to attend a conference in 2010? Take a look at the Library Related Conferences website. Maintained by Marian Dworaczek from the University of Saskatchewan Library, this exhaustive list of library conferences is updated to 2013, and includes numerous international conferences.



I’m officially registered for the 2010 Ontario Library Association Super Conference.

The theme of the conference is: Imagine. Inspire. Make a Difference.

‘Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.’ ~ Howard Thurman

What inspires me? … mobile libraries, digital strategies, collaboration tools, web design, and embracing web 2.0.

If you plan on attending, be sure to take advantage of the online conference planning tool. Here’s my preliminary conference schedule.

The Faculty of Information Quarterly is a new journal produced by the students at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Information Studies.

The primary mission of F/IQ is “to create an intellectual space for the Information community to analyse and critically assess the divergent topics that comprise our field of study and practice. To define and direct the iSchool Movement through scholarly and professional communications, as a means to fostering collective identity among students, faculty and practitioners of the field.”

F/IQ is published four times a year, October, January, April and July, and supports an open access policy.

The First Student Issue covers a variety of engaging issues including: graphic novels, net neutrality and information policy, and a look at semiotics and folksonomies.

I’m looking forward to the OLA Super Conference.  This year’s theme is, “you live, you learn”. This will be my fifth conference, and I’m sure it won’t disappoint. I always walk away inspired (and sometimes envious!) by all the amazing things happening in other libraries.

Whether this is your first or hundredth conference, be sure to check out Stephen Abram’s timeless Conference Tips list. You can also connect with other attendees and bloggers via the conference blog.

See you there!
