Sponsored by ProQuest, items to be discussed will include what is new on the exhibit floor, insights from conference session presenters, photos, and a general gathering of the SLA conference experience.

Marydee Ojala, editor of ONLINE magazine, will be heading the ITI editorial team for the SLA “Live from Nashville” blog. Other writers will include Paula Hane, ITI news bureau chief, and Nancy Garman, Information Today columnist and the director of ITI conference program planning. In addition, other ITI editors will be contributing from off-site including Barbara Quint, editor of Searcher, and Michelle Manafy, editor of EContent.

"The Special Libraries Association conference is an exciting event, with news, gatherings, and an exchange of ideas that help shape the library world. The blog hastens the speed of information sharing, and we're always enthusiastic about improving access to information." said Tina Creguer, director, communications, ProQuest Information and Learning.

“We hear so much about how Weblogs have the potential to obfuscate our trade press or usurp our role as reporters,” said Dick Kaser, ITI’s vice president of content. “But actually I think their true potential is a very interesting fast-to-press publishing platform designed to amplify our expertise as industry commentators and professional journalists.”
