It’s just a week before conference and I’m thinking about how to make sure I know where to be when I need to be there. I think the easiest way to do that is with ALA’s Event Planner.

To access the Event Planner visit the ALA Conference page and select the Event Planner link. You will have to log in to use the planner but once that’s done it’s pretty easy to add events – both conference programs and events and your own personal meetings, dinners, lunches, drinks, coffee, etc.

I usually start by searching out YALSA meetings and programs. Then I expand my world by searching for programs or meetings sponsored by other Divisions. In the end I find it really helpful to see all of my plans in calendar format.

In the old days it was possible to transfer the planner pretty easily to a PDA. That’s changed. But, what I now do print my planner as a pdf file and then transfer that file to my device. Of course ultimately it would be great to be able to integrate the planner info. into my device calendar. That day will come…
