A Week To Go

CIL 2008 is just a week away, and final preparations are in full swing.  The conference will be held in the same place as last year, the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.  For early arrivals, this year, there is a new Sunday evening session starting at 5:30–Gaming & Gadgets Petting Zoo.  If you need directions to the hotel or other information about it, click here.  And it’s not too late to register for a Blogger ribbon, just send me an e-mail.

See you there!

Welcome to the CIL 2008 Blog!

Welcome to Information Today’s blog for the 2008 Computers in Libraries (CIL) conference!

If you would like to be included on the list of other bloggers, please send me an e-mail with the name of your blog, and its URL.  Not only will you gain increased visibility for your blog, but you will get a bright green Blogger ribbon

in your badge envelope, and you will have access to the Press Room and its Internet connections for composing and sending your postings.  (The CIL wiki also has a list of bloggers, so add your name to that list, too.)

The tag for all blog posts and Flickr photos will be CIL2008.

Be sure to check back here frequently as the conference approaches for further information.

I look forward to meeting many of you in Arlington.

Best wishes,
