This is just an aside , but I thought *many* of the preconferences this
summer were overly expensive...   do they need to be so costly to register
for preconferences in addition to general registration, travel etc to ALA
this year when most of us are cutting back, and travel budgets at most
libraries esp are wiped out -?
        just something that's been on my mind.... thanks, karen
