ALA Midwinter 2011: Best Bets for Metadata Librarians and Call for Bloggers

Below is a list of metadata and digital library-friendly sessions for ALA Midwinter 2011. Planning to attend a session or already reporting on a session? Think about blogging it here! If you would like to blog any of the sessions, please contact Kristin Martin at kmarti@uic.edu with your name, e-mail address, and preferred session. A link is provided to the ALA Conference Scheduler and to fuller descriptions, when available. See a section not on here that you think would be of interest? Suggest it!

I’ve tried to be inclusive as possible with the sessions as metadata is a cross-disciplinary topic within library and information science. Sessions of interest include metadata, digital projects, digital technology, and cataloging, and are from all different groups within ALA. Note that many of the sessions are sponsored through LITA, which has its own blog and they are also looking for bloggers. They are listed here for interest and I will link to write-ups following the conference.
