 8:30-10am.I had business-y things to do. Of course those are early in the morning… I attended the Interest Group and Committee Chairs (LITA)  attending a Chairs meeting (although transitioning from Vice Chair, a Chair as of 2013 – long story) – see LITA IG Chairs agenda. I facilitated the Instructional Technology meeting and presented some examples from UNT Libraries I was involved in (tutorial templates, Blackboard, etc.) to get the conversation going. Also from the board was the new secretary Soujourna (thank goodness I didn’t have to take notes and present). http://ala13.ala.org/node/11061
