Back from AALL and the move

Well, I just got back from the American Association of Law Libraries conference in Washington D.C. last week. My first time there. The networking was excellent. I met all kinds of interesting people there.

I will say though, that as far as the educational program was concerned, it was rather hit and miss. There were some good programs, including one called, "So you think you can teach". This was done in a classroom format, where the speakers spoke as if the audience were actually their students. It waas intersting to see the differences that each instructor used. One actually liked to walk around the classroom and sit next to her students as she was lecturing. Interesting way to do it. Although if you only have a one hour seminar it probably isn't the best way to do it.

The move to our temporary quarters is proceeding, but its slow. We should be moved in by the time school starts. Hopefully, everything will turn out for well.
