As it has done for the past few years, Information Today, Inc. (ITI) sent a team of bloggers to SLA's Annual Conference in Baltimore to share news and to comment on the event. The SLA conference featured many overlapping sessions and business meetings, plus a packed exhibit hall.

The ITI blog team this year included the following:

Marydee Ojala, Editor, ONLINE
Barbara Brynko, Editor, Information Today
Don Hawkins, Columnist, Information Today
