  1. 1. 2010 Careers in Federal Libraries This year’s Careers in Federal Libraries event at ALA 2010 Annual conference was another successful event. All seats were reserved within 33 hours of announcing the event. Over 100 people were turned away, so we’ll look into hosting a virtual event in the fall. Some folks didn’t take no for an answer, so we pulled in extra seats and some folks sat on the floor eager to learn about federal librarianship. This year’s speakers were especially interesting with a blend of experienced librarians and new experts. Attendees learned what work might be available to them immediately as well as the work they might eventually do in their careers. The schedule called for short speaking slots causing the speakers to narrow their talking points. This really helped the audience get a flavor of the broad range of opportunities in federal service. Luckily many speakers stayed to network and chat with attendees over lunch. Those conversations continued for another 90 minutes. 9:00 Welcome Helen Sherman, Defense Technical Information Center 9:10 All types of Federal Libraries, All around the world Nancy A.
