Visual Resources Assocation, Atlanta 2010

Just back from the 28th Annual Conference of the Visual Resources Association, held in Atlanta.  I attended many inspiring and thought-provoking sessions on topics such as social networking, metadata, new technologies, instruction, and more.  Plenary speakers Peter Brantley and Jason Roy both discussed the new roles that visual resources departments and libraries can play in the changing technology landscape.  As always, this conference offers a compelling vision of future trends and possibilities, with practical guidance for our operations today.  I wouldn't miss it!

Anyone involved with creating, managing, and/or delivering images and other visual resources should be familiar with the Visual Resources Association (VRA) -- it is a truly amazing organization made up of incredibly knowledgeable and generous members who freely share resources and information about images with each other and with affiliated groups.  I really can't say enough about this group -- it has been my professional lifeline for over ten years now.
