  1. Stephen,
    are there talks about opening some of the executive track sessions to the regular conference attendees and vice versa? I personally wish I could be hearing Deborah Jacobs and Jenny Levine. I understand it is important to sensitize library administrators to the technologies’ potential but it could be just as beneficial to sensitize library technologists to the community’s potential. 😉 sylvie
