Conference season is here

This week I’ve been reminded we’re part way through conference season with #MLAnet2016, #pic2016 and #irms16 hashtags filling my Twitter timeline. I am very envious of all those attending, and grateful to be able to follow by Twitter.

I’m sadly not going to make #SLA2016 in Philly this year. It’ll be the first time in nine years that I haven’t attended a SLA conference and I shall miss the networking and learning.

For those going who need reminders here is some advice on getting ready for conference and preparing for conference which essentially boil down to pack layers, comfortable shoes, more business cards than you think you need and drop the British reserve when it comes to networking.

I may not be going to SLA’s conference but I will be at CILIP’s conference in Brighton, England in July. I hope to see some of you there.
