conference season schedule

07 Mar

In two weeks, I’ll be attending Computers in Libraries here in Washington, DC.  It will be the beginning of my “conference season” this year.  The last (and very first!) conference I attended was the Society of American Archivists (SAA) Annual Meeting back in August, which was conveniently located in DC as well.  It was before I started library school, so I felt like an outsider who didn’t know anything — which made me pretty shy and uneasy about reaching out to others.  Hopefully this year will be different, as I feel slightly more knowledgeable than before (though still only in my second semester) and have made connections to other LIS folks through blogging and Twitter.  At the very least, I feel as if I belong to the LIS community now.

Below are the conferences I will be going to this year, along with the dates I’ll be attending.  Please let me know if you will be there too!  And of course, I will write about my experiences after (and possibly during) the conferences.
