library_dragon5:55pm: NDLA conference
Hi Gang. Just went to the NDLA conference in Grand Forks - lots of travel for me, HA! Saw a few of us, Slimsters there and it was great - like a mini reunion. I'm still plugging away at the GFPL, work on our story time is paying off - new patrons are coming and we are getting lots of good comments. It's nice when your hard work pays off. My next challenge is to implement some teen programming. I got some ideas at conference and met some people who I can go to for advice and help. Networking really pays off! Hope everyone is doing great!

grandmasterchan11:52am: Hi everybody!

I'm about to teach my biggest class of about 30 people on library orientation for nurses. I'm a bit nervous! I miss all of you guys. I just returned back from Michigan last week and it looks like I'll be down in September in Fargo.

peripatos1:59pm: Hello
Hello All,

I'm not a ND student - I'm a Kansas SLIM student - but I didn't see a general SLIM community. Does anyone know if one exists?

I was wondering if any of you are being affected by the discontinuation of the progress review. Does anyone know what they are going to replace it with? I was due to do my progress review this summer (and I was already prepared for it) and now I have no idea what to expect or when to expect it!

Everyone seems so busy. Grand Master Chan is blogging conferences and I am still getting used to having no due assignments. The job search is not yet in high gear; I think I just need to veg out for a few days before THE NEXT BIG THING.
grandmasterchan3:33pm: Greetings from the Manitoba Library Conference
Hello everybody. I have been attending the Manitoba Library Conference for the last two days.


I worked the conference as a blogger. The blog can be found here:


Basically there would be 5 information sessions for a time slot and there were 3 time slots in a day. I covered the following ones: Up Close and Personal: Understanding Learners Motivation to Attend Library Instruction Sessions, Health Information Online: How Can We Do It Better?, RSS for Beginners, Blogging for Beginners, Customer Service Excellence and Preserving and Retrieving Electronic Records. I must say, that after the first day I was quite tired but in retrospect, combined with the work of 4 other bloggers, we were able to give people a window of what it was like for all the sessions. Quite the task.

Therefore, I ask that you guys take a look at the conference's blog to see how having a blog can give everydody and equal opportunity to experience a conference.
