So by this time next week, I’ll be in Melbourne, Australia – just starting my week over there for ALIA Conference 2014. I’m doing a co-presentation on ANZ 23 Mobile Things with Kate Freedman (@Katejf) who is an awesome friend & partner-in-crime (translate: co-organizer of the aforesaid programme).
I’m looking forward to lots of things:
- Meeting Kate IRL for the first-time and hanging out over the weekend
- Doing my first co-presentation; done a few by myself, but looking forward to this new dynamic
- Exploring Melbourne – any suggestions for place to see/visit/shop or eat at?
- Meeting heaps of amazing library people at ALIA Conference – I know quite a few from Twitter, but looking forward to meeting more & building those connections IRL
- Taking the library tours on Friday – seriously; a whole day exploring libraries? I’m keen!
So if you’re attending the conference, or work in a local library, please come up and say hi! I’m keen to meet as many new people as I can and am looking forward to making the most of this opportunity 😀
So brace yourself Melbourne – I’m coming for you (along with a whole bunch of other librarians)!
