Midwinter comes but once a year…

And when it comes, oh dear, oh dear! ALA Midwinter is next week?! How can that BE? It’s not even New Year’s yet!

In any event, here is my skeleton schedule for ALA and events leading up to it. Campus starts up again Tuesday, which is one reason I’m cutting Midwinter short. Work one day, head to two conferences… January will be a January with lots of extra January in it!

I have plenty of time for vendor visits and exhibit-walking, and meetings with friends where we both have a big asterisk hanging at present. See you in San Diego!
