It’s been quiet around here because I was lucky enough to be invited to speak to some fantastic librarians at the Hawaii Library Association Conference, so I was able to sneak in one of the most amazing vacations I’ve ever had (the pictures from which you can see here, although I’m still uploading them). Big thank yous to Dave Brier, Becky, and Vicky for inviting me and all of the help they provided for my sessions. My “talk with slides” is available on my presentations wiki as a PDF.
Hawaiian librarians rock, especially Amy, who had my favorite quote of the conference. While talking about allowing her high school students to game in the computer lab during recess, she said, “I refused to say no,” and it’s paid off big time for her. She’s made connections with the kids that she wouldn’t have otherwise made, and now some of them confide in her because of this.
Other travelers are also home now, including our Dutch friends, who have posted the final video of the Shanachie Tour. Well, of this year’s Tour, anyway. ;-) We all miss you guys very much – I sure do – but you did an amazing thing and inspired a lot of librarians here.


  1. Well,thank you for sharing your session. I am a postgraduate of library science from China. Your blog is welcome with librarians and students of this major. I will learn from you!

  2. I unfortunately don’t remember the email of any of the librarians I know personally, so you get this link instead. *grin*

  3. Thank you for the photographs of the amazing textures and contrasts of Hawaii. I enjoyed seeing them so much. I especially like the tree ferns and the turtles.
