After attending Online Northwest 2012 #onw12 it really hit home how important conferences are to students when I read this blog post from Hack Library School. Steve Krug @skrug gave the keynote on usability studies and his book Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability. Other favorite sessions included talks on ebooks, e-readers, usability studies and digital collection discovery. Our program director Perri Parise made an appearance and Alyssa Vincent a fellow SLIM student/graduate also gave a lighting talk. The food was awesome too. Thanks for a great conference!
