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!
