A la Conference

Originally uploaded by Librarienne.
We are here in the City Hall at the opening ceremony. Many countries and universities represented. One of the speakers said that Chinese is set to outpace English on the internet in a matter of years. And one of the people I cited for my paper is in the poster session!

Most of the presenters and conference-goers are young library students, and I’m surprised to see how many of them will be discussing the librarian stereotype. I saw at least four speakers or posters on this subject in the program. But then I wonder… has it always been that way?
