2018 ATLA Annual Conference Wrap Up

Submitted by Denise McFarlin, ATLA Meeting Specialist

The 2018 ATLA Annual Conference, Connection at the Crossroads: Creative Collaboration in a Changing Landscape, was held in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 13-16. Attracting 300 members, exhibitors, and international guests the conference was a tremendous success. With the help of the Local Host Committee, Robert Roethemeyer and Ken Boyd, we were able to capture all the best that Indianapolis had to offer. They showcased the downtown area and provided us with various options for exploration, which only complimented the great programming, speakers, and exhibitors during our stay. Our Local Hosts did a wonderful job on all the ideas and events that were implemented for our conference attendees.

ATLA 2018: ATLA Conferences Through the Years Contest Winners

At the 2018 ATLA Annual Conference, we paid tribute to past conferences by inviting attendees to bring their conference bags from previous years. We called the display ATLA Conferences Through the Years. An overwhelming amount of attendees brought their bags dating all the way back from 1990 up to 2017. There were even some bags that staff did not recognize!

Those who took a photo for the display were entered into a drawing to win an Amazon gift card. Over thirty people participated in the display and we have added all the photos to a Facebook album. For now, please enjoy looking through the photos of the four winners of the contest below.

Code4Lib Chicago Spring Meeting at ATLA Headquarters

Submitted by Andy Carter, ATLA Digital Projects Manager, and Christy Karpinski, ATLA Digital Collections Metadata Librarian

On May 16, ATLA hosted the Code4lib Chicago Spring Meeting in our downtown office. Code4lib is a nationwide organization of developers and technologists who work for and with libraries. We saw this event as a chance to share ATLA’s digital projects, meet our peers in the Chicago area and learn about what other institutions are working on. This meeting of the Chicago chapter brought together twenty-five people from academic and public libraries around Chicago to share and discuss current technical projects and interests.

The event was scheduled as a mix of twenty-minute presentations, lightning talks, and break-out sessions for more in-depth discussions. The best parts of any conference are the human connections and conversations started around topics of mutual interest. There were many interesting and novel ideas kicked around by the participants, more than a summary can fairly capture. We’d like to highlight four presentations by ATLA staff as they offer a glimpse of the talents and projects inside of our home office.
