InfoCamp PDX 2012 went off without a hitch and I found it quite enjoyable. The areas outside of library science that librarians can wander into are indeed interesting! Jason Sack gave the keynote on User Experience Design and was followed by others including sessions on taxonomy, media literacy, “wow” experiences in UX and many more. I’m already looking forward to next year!
A few upcoming conferences that any young up and coming librarian might be interested in attending. For those of us who might not have a firm grasp of the field its a great way to start!
