Most attendees at SLA annual conferences end up the meeting exhausted. Not only are there business meetings, networking opportunities (both scheduled and unscheduled), and the exhibit hall, there are the sessions. Lots of sessions. One attendee (Thanks, Judith!) pointed out that SLA set a new record on Tuesday afternoon with 30 competing sessions. That’s a lot to choose from.
Thinking about the themes represented by the sessions, I saw lots of programs centered around resources. Those resources were usually Web sites. New roles for librarians was another popular topic. Archives and electronic record management seemed more strongly represented than in past years.
