ALA 2010: The Costly Cornucopia
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v135 n10 p26-40 Jun 2010
Every librarian wants to go to the American Library Association (ALA) annual conference in Washington, DC, June 24-29. Despite that, more than half of those asked informally said they can't afford it. The good news is a cornucopia of programs aimed at nearly every need of librarians of all types and including every best practice in libraries. Many offer practical applications of the profession's core values. Even better, most sessions are free once a participant pays to register. There is advice for internal and external communications, as well as strategies and practical political tips for public budget battles and other advocacy. Programs on the benefit and need for green libraries and librarianship are side by side with programs on how to employ the latest hard- and software in staff development, publicity, reference and research work, and information literacy.
