I am attending the HHLIB III Conference today and tomorrow. Lots of good speakers and info on mobile technology and how to use it in libraries and what other libraries are doing. I highly recommend it. If you can’t attend but would like to see some highlights. You can follow along at Twitter by using the #hhlib hashtag.
This conference started out with a Battledecks session. I’ve seen it before (virtually) from ALA. This Battledecks session seemed to be hit and miss. There were some great speakers but I think the session lacked energy. For me, it was hard to stay focused.
The keynote speakers for the morning were Joe Murphy and Chad Mairn. A very awesome presentation that highlighted the where mobile library services are going and finding out what libraries are doing now – “Creating the Future of Mobile Library Services.” The afternoon’s keynote is by Lisa Carlucci Thomas. It’s called “Risk, Reality & the Mobile Revolution.” I’ve heard her speak before and she is great! Should be very interesting and relevant.
Will talk more tomorrow or later this afternoon…
