Greetings from Seattle. Yes, it’s raining. (To be fair, it was sunny yesterday.) I’m here for the Chronicle, covering the 14th biannual conference of the Association of College and Research Libraries. What’s on the minds of 3,000 academic librarians? Quite a lot. Read my first report here. (You all do realize that reporters don’t usually get to write their own headlines, right?)
Substance-related foonote: I’m still looking for a good cup of coffee, having vowed not to set foot in a Starbucks while I’m here. Coffee-shop recommendations from Seattle aficionados would be welcome. If you have ever been to a conference, you know that caffeine (not too much, not too little) is critical to the experience.
