Day One: OLC Innovative Environments

Wow! What a day. Ran into Belen Fernandez (formerly of CML then Franklin University and now Capital University Library) first thing this morning and caught up. Patrick did a great job with his inrto to the opening session where three really inspiring speakers, Stephen Abram, Janice M. Brown and Brad Mitchell, got us going for the morning. During lunch we participated in a World Cafe style discussion about what holds us and our organizations back from innovating. For my afternoon sessions I listened to Andrew Pace from OCLC talk about a dream to create a network distributed libray management system and then great slides of innovative ideas from Westerville Public Library, Worthington Libraries and Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library recent building projects.

Helene and I (and a couple others I don't know (yet)) are tweeting during our sessions. Go to twitter and search the hash tag #ie08 to see what we're saying. You may need to request to follow me and Helene first to see what were saying. Go to the Learn & Play list of followers on Twitter to find us.
