I have just returned from Computers in Libraries 2013 in Washington, DC.  It was a great experience and I will look at ways to apply the ideas and methods I encountered in our library here at AFRL/RI in Rome, NY.  I posted my notes for each session I attended on my blog. The link to the posts is:


After I get my head above water with over 320 emails to get through, I will be writing a report and also updating posts with what I took away from each one.  I have done that in some of them already.


I met several military libraries and many federal librarians.  Thank you to those that took the time to introduce yourselves to me.
