20 Years & Going Strong

I can’t believe it is the eve before the 20th Computers in Libraries conference. Computers and libraries are still key to managing information and knowledge in the 21st century, and we always need to know more about to do it!

The first 10 years of the program were planned by Nancy Nelson who at the time was with Mecklermedia, the producer of the conference. Alan Meckler, now CEO of Jupitermedia, sold Mecklermedia to Penton, and has his own blog. Nancy works for a rural public library and is moderating a session of CIL veterans on Thursday morning, Session D201 & D202, which looks at academic libraries, technology, and their future directions.

Now, I have planned the content for 10 CIL conferences for Information Today — with lots of help from wonderful colleagues. Time flies when you’re having fun, and it is fun to work with great librarians and technologists, meet new people every year, hear interesting thoughts, gain new insights — all in a buzzing environment. Can you tell I’m anxious to begin our 20th program?

Hope to see you!
