A version of this item appeared in the summer issue of the Chronicle.
If you attended the Annual Conference this year, please feel free to share your photos online in the MLA 2008 Group on Flickr. The group name is “MLA 2008.”
If you were unable to attend, there are various URLs from which you can access the posters, which are available as PowerPoint slides or in Portable Document Format at this site or at this one. If you prefer, you can also access the posters by session.
Presentation slides from plenaries and other sessions are online here and here. A few more presentations are linked from my del.icio.us account.
Lastly, here is one-stop shopping for the blogs that were maintained throughout the conference by the official MLA’08 conference bloggers. Read all about the conference through participants’ eyes.
Tidbit: On his blog, David Rothman does a quick camera pan of our chapter’s poster. The shot appears about thirty-two seconds into the video; pity that he didn’t scan the whole poster, just the top of it.
David Rothman set up a GroupTweet for MLA2008.
There are a number of medical libraryfolk using Twitter, so I thought it might be fun if we were able to conveniently send each other short messages during MLA 2008. All I had to do was set up the MLA2008 account and register it with GroupTweet.
His easy to follow instructions for getting started are at davidrothman.net.
