New England Library Association Annual Conference

Just wanted to remind everyone that the New England Library Association (NELA) Annual Conference is coming up. This years theme is “Taking Charge of Change” and the programs look terrific. The conference is being held October 19-21 in Manchester, NH at the Raddison Hotel and Conference Center.

I’ve created a wiki for people to coordinate carpooling/roommates for events, this one being the first one. It’s called the VLA Travel Wiki and it is hosted at PBwiki. For everyone’s privacy, I have made the wiki for the VLA membership by invitation only. Please email me (celestihel[at] if you are interested in trying/checking it out and I’ll shoot you an invite just as quick as I can.

If wiki’s are new to you and you want to check them out generally before you try out the travel wiki, try popping over to the Vermont 23 Things site. Thing 17 and Thing 18 are about wikis and include some helpful tutorials, tips, and a sandbox to play around with, and there is a good deal of information about PBwiki specifically.
