… much difference a year makes. Last night's event at Fort Edmonton was a much different experience than the previous year. Certainly the food and drink was the same as last year, but the attendance was far different. There were far fewer people in attendance. That said, I had some great experiences talking with fabulous members of both the library community and my fellow students in both first year and second year. It was a good evening overall and I thank Julie for the ride.
But it wasn't the same as last year's event with so many people that you could hardly move: I don't think as many library professionals were in attendance, nor were as many first years there. So yeah it was a pretty quiet evening.
I wonder how next year's will compare and how much of the difference is due to the difference in library leadership.
