Information Today, Inc.'s news bureau chief and NewsBreaks editor Paula Hane has posted a report on the ALA Annual Conference and news emanating from it. Here's her opening salvo:

Along with that, of course, come all the issues and considerations involved: copyright/DRM, rising costs of digital collections, format issues, and the rapidly evolving publishing market. For librarians, it's about how to provide enhanced services through the emerging technologies. They had a lot to look at and think about while in New Orleans.
