Thanks to Deborah for providing us with some great information about conferences 
that relate to libraries!  I appreciate the insights and observations of others who 
attend these types of programs---and report back to us as a whole.

Here in Texas, we have the Texas Computer Educator's Association meeting every 
February which provides those of us within the state an opportunity to see what is 
happening in technology ----including areas involving libraries and librarians, but 
from the "techie" point of view.  It is interesting to see how close we are in our 
thinking and idealogy when we attend the conferences.

I would highly recommend that we follow Alice's advice and Deborah's example, by 
reporting our libary-related conference highlights to LM_NET. It's important that 
we see what is happening outside our "box" and understand how libraries fit into 
the picture.  It's also a great way to see IF we even "fit in the future" of those 
who plan for changes in education.  I would also recommend that for those who 
attend these types of library-related conferences on a regular basis, to begin 
thinking of presentation proposals that could be made on behalf of librarians.  
This is a great way for us to "teach" our skills to those outside our own 
environments and to encourage others to look at their own librarians with "wonder 
and excitement" when they think of new ideas for research, instruction, and 

Thanks again for sharing!
