Demco Introduced a New 4-Player Game Station

Though the Gaming Pavilion at the ALA Expo was notably devoid of video game suppliers this year, Demco’s Anthony Diaz showed me the latest design in library gaming stations.  The moon-rover design features four distinct gaming stations in one compact space, with lots of lockable cubby holes for gaming devices and peripherals, including the guitar Diaz is playing.  Retail price on the unit is $3600.  Review the specs here.

It's That Time Again…


Yep, we’re back for another Computers in Libraries conference. Today, Sunday, saw lots of people arriving in DC and settling in, while others were delayed by flight troubles. And there were a number of great pre-conference sessions today — including one by Yours Truly.

This evening there was another successful gaming session put together by Aaron Schmidt and Erik Boekesteijn. Lots of people gathered for pizza and playtime.

Tomorrow morning will begin with the welcomes from the conference organizers and the opening keynote. Stay tuned!

Lots of attendees enjoyed the Gaming session Sunday night. Some played Wii, DDR, and Guitar Hero while others watched and learned from the sidelines. Definitely more fun than I can capture in a blog post! Even the pictures don’t tell the full story, but I’ll post some here anyway.

This was a great way to kick off the conference and get people energized!

It's That Time of Year Again

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s Internet Librarian time again… but here I am back in Monterey.

There were preconferences yesterday and today, and the full conference starts with a bang tonight with a Gaming session run by Aaron Schmidt and Erik Boekesteijn. (That’s in the DeAnza room, 5:30-8.)
