TLA

I've just received the program for the Texas Library Association annual conference. Lots of good sessions. Some of the ones I'm sure to catch include:
  • Open-Source Software and Libraries a Good Fit? by Charles Bearden. Chuck was one of the early people working on marc.pm so he has the background. Besides, he was in my class in library school.
  • Out of this World Collaborations. One of my co-workers here at the Lunar & Planetary Institute is a presenter. 'Nuff said.
  • Content Management Using PERL by George Eggleston. Aside from his qualifications, he used to play mandolin in my wife's contra dance band, Permanent Wave
There are some interesting cataloging sessions including a preconference workshop on changes in serials cataloging. The Texas Regional Group of Catalogers and Classifiers (TRGCC) will have a table and I'll be there as well. Stop by and say Hi.
