World eBook Fair and OCLC CAPCON Annual Meeting
The Chronicle broke the World eBook Fair story (for me, at least...). There is a subscription requirement, so let me know in the comments if you can't get in but want to.
This post comes to you live and direct from Washington, DC. I'm here to take part in the OCLC CAPCON Annual Meeting tomorrow. Patricia Martin of OCLC Symposium fame [MP3 link] (among many other fames) is the keynote speaker.
Heather, a fellow marketeer, and I have just spent the better part of the evening setting up. The day is going to be fun: it's all organized around innovation and new ideas for library marketing. As Heather explained, "We want to inspire people to know that they don't need a lot of money to do relevant marketing activities in their library that will make a noticable difference."
So I should have a full report (and photos) tomorrow. Plus, I get to present some of the work we've done on a library merchandising project this spring!
