Exhibit Hall Opens To an Overflow Crowd

The Exhibit Hall opened tonight at 5 PM, and immediately a large crowd beseiged the vendors’ booths and food stands.  Here are some of the scenes:


The crab cakes were especially popular..


…as was the e-mail area.


Authors of recently published ITI books autographed copies for attendees.


Here’s a really innovative display.  EnvisionWare was showing an automatic book sorter.  Library users (here represented by Pat Hawkins) return bar-coded books in a slot.  The machine reads the codes…


…and directs the book to the proper bin for reshelving.  Neat!

    Hi. I’m a corporate librarian currently on sabbatical from my job and winding up a round-the-country driving trip. I just arrived in Monterey today and discovered that Internet Librarian 2007 is going on while I’m here. Any chance I could pop in to visit the exhibitor hall? (I’m sure I’ll find some vendor invitations when I finally get back to the office next week.)
