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.
Where will I be during the conference? Check out my preliminary schedule.
See you there!

I’m attending the OLA Super Conference 2008 from January 30th-February 2nd.
The theme of this year’s conference is Transformation and focuses on 3 R’s: reinvention, regeneration, and rejuvination. I love attending the OLA conference as it gives me a chance to explore new technologies, and how they are being implemented in other libraries.
I’ve just started selecting my session in My Super Conference. There is so much to choose from, and I have overlap in some time slots. I’ll probably narrow down my choices as I run between sessions in the Convention Centre.

The conference takes place in Toronto from January 30th-February 2nd, 2008.
The theme of the conference is transformation.
In the words of the Esther Rosenfeld, OLA President, “This year Super Conference looks at how we can transform ourselves and our institutions so that we can thrive as this era of rapid change continues.”
