The flight to Atlanta was a breeze. I had to deal with the awkwardness that ensues when traveling with a giant poster tube, but other than that it was smooth flying. We arrived in Atlanta around 1 p.m. and after a hotel mix-up and two taxis later, we arrived at the correct destination. Shannon and I checked in at the hotel and conference. I looked through the program and tried to pick which sessions I wanted to attend. ICED has concurrent sessions, which lumps similar topics into a one-and-a-half-hour chunk of time. To my delight, there was a session all about academic librarianship, which included the dissertation of Lauren Hays. It also included three other presenters whose topics ranged from information literacy to inquiry-based learning. After unpacking and taking a look at the conference program, Shannon and I decided to stretch our legs and go across the street to the mall. We walked for a bit and grabbed dinner before calling it a night.
