Just What is an Unconference Anyway?

By Alexis Mokler

While I have never attended an “unconference”, I have spent the last five years attending conferences held by UNYSLA, NYLA, etc. I originally dreaded the idea meeting in a room full of strangers to talk about topics that were entirely new to me as a 1st year library school student and later as a 1st year librarian. I’m glad I didn’t let that stop me.

Over the years, I have met some of the brightest, most interesting, and in some cases, well-connected librarians and information professionals in this country. At the UNYSLA Fall 2009 conference in Syracuse, I discovered that Janice R. Lachance, SLA’s CEO, and I grew up in the same small town in Maine!

If you are still unsure as to whether this will benefit you, read on for more information on Unconferences.

Registration for SLA 2010 Annual Conference Now Open

Registration and housing are now open for
SLA 2010!

Lagniappe (that’s New Orleans-speak for something extra): New Orleans has some of the best bargains among major conference cities, with great prices on hotel rooms and world-class cuisine. And with more than 250 sessions, panels, and keynotes; endless networking and sharing opportunities; and the high-octane INFO-EXPO hall (where you can learn about new products and technologies), this is one conference you can’t afford to miss!
