You have heard me say this before but I think it bears repeating, I love the OLA Support Staff Division annual conference. It was held last Friday in Hood River. It sadly started with a rather ho-hum keynote speech but quickly gained speed when we moved into breakout sessions.
Again this year, I really enjoyed the “Day in the Life” session. The three presenters could not have been any different but they were equally engaging and interesting. Erich Peppler from our own Talking Book and Braille Services had a power point presentation that did a great job of outlining a day in his life. Erich was followed by Turner Masland from Portland State University Library Resource Sharing Department. Great visual aides helped us picture what those big stacks of interlibrary loan materials look like, and Kate Winsor from the Hood River County Library District provided an action packed skit of a day in her life. There were lots of nods of recognition from the audience for Kate’s day…
If you want an excellent account of the Conference I refer you to the Support Staff Division blog sup-port-abil-i-ty and while you are there you can subscribe to it.
Thanks OLA Support Staff Division for a great conference and all your great work!
