Blog Salon - Time and Place at ALA MW

After much to-ing and fro-ing, we have decided to hold the Blog Salon on Saturday evening, January 20th beginning at 7:30pm. It will be in the Blue Suite* at the Sheraton Seattle. We were going to have it on Friday but there are many evening events, some of which your IAG bloggers want to attend. And on Saturday, there will be a reception celebrating the life and achievements of Fred Kilgour. Here's the information from our website (please register!). Hope to see you all at both events.

5:30 - 7:00 pm, Westin Seattle, Grand Ballrooms I & II
Celebration of Life for Frederick G. Kilgour. Join us for brief remarks about the impact OCLC Founder Fred Kilgour had on contemporary librarianship and other remembrances about Mr. Kilgour. A wine and cheese reception will follow.

*If you've come to past blog salons, you'll recall that we don't know the actual room number of the OCLC suites until our intrepid conference staff arrive at the hotel. As soon as we have a number, we'll post it here. Hotel front desk staff will know too, and you can just ask for the "OCLC Blue Suite."

At first I thought it was at the same time as the NMRT social and I almost threw a hissy fit. You must drink and make merry for well over an hour (not a problem judging from past salons) as I can't make it until 8:30.
