SirsiDynix SuperConference and SDI Executive Track

Registration is now open for the SirsiDynix SuperConference. You can find out more here.
We’re at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center this year from April 5-8. There are many pre-conference training opportunities, the SirsiDynix Institute Executive Conference, a vendor exhibition and 100+ informative breakouts are all being planned now for the best SuperConference ever in a beautiful facility.
I am especially involved in the SDI Executive Track. You can see the program here. I think we have an awesome line-up this year on the theme of Open Libraries.
We will have the return of the popular Lee Rainie from the Pew Internet & American Life project. I’ll be presenting there and there will be special appearances from this amazing group of folks:
Deb Jacobs, Seattle Public Library
Lesley Boughton, Wyoming State Librarian
Terri Fredericka, Executive Director, INFOhio
The SirsiDynix technology and development leaders
Gary Rautenstrauch, SirsiDynix CEO
I am also very excited to have Peter Morville, from Semantic Studios and librarian author of O’Reilly’s Ambient Findability and Information Architecture for the WWW at the conference. He blogs at is writing a new book on search patterns. He has uploaded screenshots illustrating different types of search patterns to Flickr. He asks folks to add tags, notes, and comments, and suggest new examples. Over time, he hopes to include patterns that illustrate user behavior and the information architecture of search and be blogging about search patterns as the collection and his ideas evolve. I think this will be a very interesting session.
Like all SirsiDynix events, the SDI Executive Track is open to everyone.
