Free Pint reported on the recent Special Libraries Association conference in New York - some of my favourite snippets from their daily reports:

Day 1
“Top tip for information professionals - develop and practice a three-minute elevator speech encompassing what it is you and your department do, and why you justify investment when caught in a lift with your Director or CEO?” Something we've been practising at DLnet masterclasses.

Day 2 -
“there has never been a more vital time for information professionals to aggressively publicise their knowledge of the sheer range of information choices, sources and services out there.”

“Call me an information Professional, call me a librarian, call me a web guru. Whatever. Just call me” – Gary Price talking about the L word

Day 3 - a round up of latest technology to watch out for – VERY interesting!
