Live blogging Fall ’12 Depository Library Conference. Hashtag is #dlcf12

The 2012 Depository Library Council meeting and conference is upon us. It’s sure to be 4 days packed with educational sessions and discussions about the FDLP Forecast Study and the future of the FDLP. Here’s the conference schedule.

As in past years, there will be live blogging of the conference for those not able to make it to Washington DC.

You’ll be able to follow along below or directly on the twitter site.

I’m also told that there will be virtual attendance for the four daily sessions on the FDLP Forecast Study (pre-registration is required):

We’ll be live blogging once again at the Spring 2011 Depository Library Conference from San Antonio, TX. With a new Public Printer and Superintendent of Documents, the discussions are sure to be interesting. The 3 plenary sessions will be especially interesting and include discussions on PACER, future needs and goals of the FDLP and a weds morning session on permanent public access to digital material with a panel from HathiTrust, Internet Archive, GPO staff and Chris Brown.

The twitter hashtag #dlc11s and #dlc11 will show up in the live blog so we hope many of the attendees will tweet their thoughts and comments. Twapper Keeper now has a subscription model, so the only archive of tweets will be the live blog.

If anyone would like to volunteer to be a DLC reporter and use CoverItLive to track the conference, please contact me ASAP at freegovinfo AT gmail DOT com.
