ALA Midwinter was very busy, but productive. I’m Co-Chair of the ACRL Science & Technology Section (STS) Research Committee, and we met on Saturday to go over poster proposals for the upcoming poster session at ALA Annual in Washington, DC. The topic of the poster session is very interesting: institutional repositories of non-textual information (i.e., maps, images, etc.).
On Sunday morning, the RUSA-CODES Liaison with Users Committee met, and we went over the results of two surveys on the nature of liaison work in academic and public libraries. On Sunday afternoon, I attended the ACRL STS Program Planning Committee, where we discussed the logistics of the upcoming poster session at ALA Annual.
On Monday morning, I went to ACRL-STS Council, which includes the Executive Board and the co-chairs of all of the committees and discussion groups. We discussed the ACRL Environmental Scan and upcoming events at ALA Annual and ACRL National.
Other highlights of my trip to Seattle included going to a comedy club, the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and various Seattle coffeehouses. Overall, it was a great trip.
