A Conference for Every Season
by Donovan Griffin

Although we have conference news throughout the year here at IT, this month, we’ve got an entire summer’s worth of meetings, sessions, and get-togethers for you to look through. Our first stop is in Vienna with Emil Levine, who brings us up-to-date with the International Society for Information Studies’ summit in “The Information Society at the Crossroads” on page 1.

On this side of the Atlantic, Brandi and I made the trek to Philadelphia in order to catch up with the members of the American Association of Law Libraries; see the coverage on page 10’s “Law Librarians in the City of Brotherly Love.” One page over from there, you’ll find a report about ALA’s annual shindig in “ALA 2015: Celebrating Pride and Tech in San Francisco.” And if you’re curious about how SLA went this year, make your way over to Marydee Ojala’s NewsBreak on the subject, “The Future of SLA: A Strategic Framework and Recommendations for Moving Forward,” found at

For the telecommuters out there, Shirl Kennedy lays down the ground rules for monopolizing space in coffee shops on page 8. And Gwen Gregory reviews Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums: How to Clean, Link and Publish Your Metadata, which describes various methods to tame troublesome data, on page 20.

As always, there’s plenty more inside. Take a look.
