I am so psyched for ALA’s 2014 Annual Conference in Las Vegas! I fly out to Vegas on June 25 which gives me a whole day before opening ceremony to get situated. I haven’t decided yet if I am going to pay extra for a pre-conference that day, or make sure that I am 100% caught up on my summer course so that I don’t have to worry about too much work during conference. This is my second annual ALA conference, and my third major conference this year, so I’m posting some information for new folks about what I think is essential based on my own experiences, and I’ll link to some posts that I found especially helpful before my first conference. See you after the jump!
