By Brandi Loveday

Strausser, Senior HR Consultant at Cornell University, inviting attendees to explore consensus decision making via the case study method.  Strangely enough, we all came to the consensus that it is nearly impossible to achieve agreement and satisfaction on the part of everyone involved in a group decision making process.

Just What is an Unconference Anyway?

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!
