A Room with a View (of the Future)

Wondering what the future of SLA looks like? It was on display at the first-timers' reception Sunday afternoon. More than a hundred young information professionals ate finger food, swapped business cards, made new friends, and chatted with longtime SLA members for nearly two hours.

Conversations ranged from the casual ("Oh, a friend of mine used to work at the Justice Department") to the curious ("What do you think of the Google book settlement?") to the controversial ("My friends at public libraries don't agree with me about this, but they're looking at it too narrowly"). But one common thread ran through all of them–a longing to connect, to be with other information professionals and learn from and share with them. By the end of the reception, the purple "First Timer" ribbons they were wearing had become status symbols.

What does our future look like? It's all around us …
