Thanks Internet Librarian International!

I am behind in a few posts, but I wanted to make sure I gave a big shout out to the delegates, organizers and advisory board of this year’s Internet Librarian International conference. I was honored to be a conference co-chair this year. It was a wonderful two days in London, filled with intriguing discussions and ideas from around the globe. This conference always energizes me because of the perspectives our delegates bring. I especially enjoyed participating in the closing plenary with conference co-chair Donna Saxby.
