Out of the Library: Presenting at the NY Library Association Public Libraries Section

Last week was very busy, and ended on Friday with a whirlwind trip out to New York to present at the New York Library Association Public Libraries Section Spring Conference. This was held down in Hyde Park at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum, which I had never been to before. The weather could not have cooperated more, and I was very pleased to co-present with Anna (@helgagrace) on erotica in libraries.

The group was really great, energetic, and had a lot of questions. The rest of the day I got to hear an interesting keynote from Tim Stevens of Engadget about publishing and the effect of sponsored editorials (advetorials) in relationship to reference queries and vetting sources. Then the afternoon was devoted (for me) to reader's advisory for both children and young adults. It was a fabulous day!
