A Capital Conference Begins April 27, 2008

Posted by flutebrarian in Librarianship.

Today was the pre-conference day for the 16th annual Innovative Users Group (IUG) meeting in Washington, DC. I chose to attend the afternoon workshop on WebPAC design and must admit, it was a nice review for someone like me who has been creating web sites for nearly a decade, but I really didn’t learn much of anything new. Innovative’s workshops can be extremely informative or a bit of a let down. ‘Nuf said which this one was.

This is also a bittersweet conference since my good friend and colleague Sue McCann is retiring at the end of June and this will be her last IUG. We’ve been through a lot of discussions and sessions together as our libraries seemed to parallel each other over the past 13 years.

Retirement dinner at Old Ebbitt Grill

To celebrate, a few of us took Sue out to Old Ebbitt Grill tonight. The food was excellent and the atmosphere fun and historic. It was established in 1856 and the lobby features real gas lights.

Tomorrow brings the opening session, programs, exhibits, and of course, Innovative’s dessert reception. Yum!
