Internet Librarian 2005

I’ve been at the Internet Librarian 2005 conference in Monterey, CA this week. Tomorrow I go home — hopefully to warmer temperatures! 😉

There have been many very good sessions here. There are also a number of people blogging these sessions (InfoToday provided free wireless in the convention center). As I find them, I will link to the good overviews I find.
