- Meeting Tweets! I have already communicated with several. It will be fun to put faces with names.
- Librarian special interest group meeting, LIB_SIG! This meeting is one I never miss and, while I am not an officer this year, I always seem to be a bit involved with planning. Our speaker this year is Dr. Carol Simpson, copyright guru! Should be great! Also, I should mention right here that several years ago Marlene Woo-Lun and I had a conversation that ended up with Linworth Press taking us under their wing and supplying us annually with a great speaker. This ongoing support has been a huge factor in the growth of our group.
- Presenting! I used to get very anxious about presentations but over the years have come to enjoy them more and more. I will be presenting along with my favorite sidekick, Dr. Holly Weimar. We are talking about Web 2.0 and filtering
- Exhibits! Every time I go to a conference I tell myself I will lose all restraint over the exhibits, grabbing every freebie and losing myself to sensory overload. This time I am not even going to make that promise. Bring 'em on!

I love this conference and am promising myself that I will blog while there. Here are some things I am looking forward to:
