Highlights From Internet Librarian 2021
by Sophia Guevara
I had the opportunity to both present at and attend Information Today, Inc.'s 2021 Internet Librarian Connect conference, which was held virtually Oct. 26–28. As a presenter, I was able to attend the conference for free and see much of the work that went on behind the scenes, including recording my session on Zoom and participating in a preconference technology check. There was much hard work put into the event to ensure that attendees were able to gain value from the online experience. For those who are unfamiliar with the conference, Internet Librarian describes itself as for librarians and information professionals of all types and from all settings.

Rescued by the itinerant Dr. Peace, she is taken to Benderville, a model mill town in the heart of the Pines owned by the doctor's old friend, the eccentric, progressive Benjamin Bender.
