IFLA’s 2011 Conference opened yesterday in San Juan, PR. I’m not attending the conference (physically, at least), but I got a good sense of the events of opening day by looking at IFLA Express, the dedicated website for daily news and updates. The opening session was well represented with a large collection of photos, including crowd shots. Take a look–you might see someone you know. I spotted Jane Dysart and Frank Cervone, long-time attendees at ITI’s Computers in Libraries and Internet Librarian conferences. (Jane is Program Chair of these two events, and Frank has made many presentations at them.)
IFLA Express also features a daily video with an interview with a selected guest. Today’s video was on the subject of “Policy, Strategy, and Advocacy, and the guest was Helena Asamoah-Hassan, University Librarian at KNUST Library in Kumasi, Ghana. And the sidebar provides links to posts by bloggers at the conference.
