Jacob Berg’s Guide for 2015 is online:
A brief word about the guide:With a few exceptions, anything posted below have been vetted by me. These are places I frequent, or at least have been in. Not mentioned is that west of the conference there are many embassies, which would be a nice walk during breaks, or after the sessions have ended for the day.
Join your colleagues, fellow conference attendees, and your hosts for terrific conversation, dinner on the town, and lots of fun you won’t soon forget! Chat about the day’s events and topics of interest. Choose from a range of wonderful food and dining expeditions to great restaurants in the D.C. area. Sign up online for the excursion of your choice. (You pay for your own dinner but share a table with other CIL participants.) Lists will be maintained online, and during the conference copies will be on the bulletin boards in the registration area at the Hilton Washington. Groups will meet either in that area before going to the restaurant together or will meet at the restaurant.
The full program for Computers in Libraries 2015 is now available as a downloadable ICS file that you can import into most calendar programs and organizers.
The calendar includes the full program of tracked sessions as well as the workshops, keynotes, breaks, and evening events.
Computers in Libraries 2015 continues a long tradition of looking at emerging technologies, hearing from bleeding edge practitioners, and sharing case studies of innovative libraries, and insights from information industry leaders and watchers.
Our programming is practical so participants can apply what they learn at the conference directly within their communities. Join us this April in DC and celebrate 30 years of library success!
There has been some great information sharing on Twitter this week via the #internetlibrarian hashtag.
Download the Internet Librarian 2014 Tweet Archive here.
The archive is a zipped file containing the archive in three formats: Microsoft Excel, Open Office/Libre Office, and as a tab delimited text file.
The single most retweeted item was:
love to see a library that weeds their websites like they do their books. Least visited pages get weeded. Anyone do it? #internetlibrarian

The (non-sponsored) Tweet flagged as a favorite by the most people was:
#internetlibrarian Let us help vs Let us do it. Patrons respond better when they don't feel like they are bothering you.
