Librarians and Technology

Last week I attended the American Library Association annual conference in Washington D.C. Let me get my weather complaint out of the way now… it was too hot and humid. I melted each day. Ok, back to the conference. I was so happy to see more technology being used and sold. I predict the QR codes will get more and more popular even though they have been around for a while. They are so very cool and with all of the smartphones out there people will be using them to convey and receive information. Of course, apps were mentioned all over the place. Besides the obvious e-book reader apps there are other mobile library apps coming down the road. The ALA also offered their great Ambassador service in which you could TM an “ambassador” with a question about the conference and then receive a TM back with the answer. Anything from “where is such in such session being held?” to “what time does Amy Sedaris speak?” A great, rejuvenating conference.
