(ALA)'s LibLearnX (formerly Midwinter) will be in Baltimore, MD. Conference registration is now open. Anyone here know of librarian friends going?

There are a few major library conferences coming up later this year so library vendors might have had to pick what to attend or pass.Most of the sessions related to public libraries that I attended had strong showing. Readers Advisory is a big draw for us!The one on AI & Libraries was interesting. The panelists talked about how librarians should learn to use AI and be knowledgeable on ChatGPT. When it was time for Q&A at the end, mostly academic librarians came up to the microphones ask the panelists questions.I'm glad I went since it was local; I also got to see folks I hadn't seen in awhile. Not to mention fans for the big Ravens game on Saturday went home happy!
