I’ve been to many library conferences, but the most inspiring conference I ever attended was Internet Librarian in 2008. I gained all kinds of tools that I needed to accomplish a huge grant project I had inherited. Not only did I get to network with some really impressive individuals, but I was able to gain skills, learn new tools, and take all of those back to Idaho.
This year I have the priviledge of presenting at Internet Librarian. I think it would be great to see a whole bunch of Idaho library people at Internet Librarian this year. Think of all the inspiration we could bring back collectively! I hope you’ll meet me there: http://www.infotoday.com/il2010/
If you are in Idaho, and you’ve never been to Internet Librarian, you can apply for CE Grants to attend through the Idaho Commission for Libraries! Check it out! http://libraries.idaho.gov/landing/continuing-education
