I appreciated the opportunity to attend the North Carolina Library Association conference last month. I was a former member who plans on renewing membership to take advantage of that student rate. The conference has really come a long way in terms of content. In years past, much of the content was centered around public libraries. That is not necessarily a bad thing. But, for us academic and special library employees; there was a bit of a disconnect. This time around, I had a hard time deciding which presentations to attend, there were so many to choose from. I truly enjoyed and learned much from the research literacy presentation by the staff of North Carolina Agricultural & Technology University. I also got much perspective from the diversity program presented by two members of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro library staff. I only attended on one day, but it did pack a wallop! For your convenience, I’ve provided a link to the presentations that I saw and some that I missed.
