I’m in Denver at the Reference Renaissance Conference (hopefully the first of many). They have great attendance with over 500 attendees. That’s right at the levels of VRD at its biggest (in Chicago). The conference started out with a great keynote. Hopefully the presentation will be available online, because it is well worth a listen. While a bit on the utopian social side, it is rich with ideas to think about (and books to read).
It is great to see the return of a national reference conference. I think these kinds of events are still important to create cohorts, and push ahead the field as a whole.
Good job BCR and everyone!
