Gadgets and More Gadgets

Barbara Fullerton, Sabrini Pacifici, and Aaron Schmidt gave their always popular gadgets session at an evening session tonight.  Copies of their PowerPoint slides with the details of the gadgets will be on Aaron’s and Sabrini’s blogs as well as the conference presentations website shortly.  A new feature of their presentation was the special inclusion of some eco-friendly gadgets. 

Following the gadget part of the session, a team from the Delft Public Library in the Netherlands presented a series of short videos illustrating best practices in various libraries that they visited on a road trip from New York to Monterey.  The video sketches will be combined in a documentary they are creating.  You can see the clips and the complete documentary (when it is ready) on their website.

As usual, the evening session was entertaining and punctuated by lots of laughter, and a good time was had by all.
