Heading to ALA this year? If you're curious about the latest Google search tools, developments, and features, here are some sessions and events you may want to add to your itinerary:
- Find out how to make your library's scholarly holdings discoverable via Google Scholar at Google Scholar and Your Library, which takes place Monday at 1:30pm in room 201 of the Washington Convention Center.
- Get the scoop on how our expanding Library Project is shaping up at the LITA session The Google Five Libraries -- Two Years, Six Months, and Seven Days in the Life of the Google Library Project on Saturday at 4:00pm in the Renaissance Washington's Grand Ballroom.
- Hear about the latest features and uses for Google Book Search, Custom Search Engine, and other tools from Googler/librarian Ben Bunnell at Google Presents: New Developments on Sunday at 10:30am in Room 143B of the Washington Convention Center.
- Visit the Google booth (#1943) -- we'll show you "What's Cooking in Google Labs" in our teaching theater, and you can test your mad search skillz with our online scavenger hunt. You'll also find more tangible treats (edible and otherwise), and (back by popular demand) our giant Google doodle.
As for me, ALA just isn't ALA without a peek at the Book Cart Drill Team World Championship.
See you in DC!
