Another week, another conference

I guess it's not as bad as all that, but I *was* at another conference this weekend, for the Iowa OCLC Users' Group. I somehow became the vice chair for the cataloging section back in October. It's fun to talk to other catalogers about how crazy everyone else is. Then I can go back to the reference job and say, "wow, those wacky catalogers, eh?" It's the best of both worlds.

The conference was pretty good, but I enjoyed the trip to Omaha afterward a bit more. I went to the Henry Doorly Zoo and saw some pygmy hippos along with a wide variety of other cute critters. I also got to spend part of the night before huddled in the hotel room bathroom because of tornadoes. Ah, the joys of living in the Midwest...when will those Hawaii jobs open up?

Now I'm off to get married (at this point I'm just looking forward to when it will all be over) and I'll have a week or two's reprieve before ALA....

I mean, really, think about how much stress you could have getting married if the wedding was big :-) Plus, you're marrying me.

Samantha,Congratulations on your nuptials. May you have many happy years together!I think it's great that you have feet in both the reference and cataloging worlds. I don't catalog, but I always try to make time for our state association's cataloging roundtable meeting at conference. They're neat people who do important work for the library. More of us noncatalogers need to show our apprecation for the field.

Sigh. It sounds so romantic--ALA as a honeymoon of sorts.

Seems to be more than a few LISNewsterz gettin' hitched lately.
