Librarian Wardrobe

Not always buns and sensible shoes, librarians at various types of libraries have different styles (and dress codes). Check it out here or submit your own.

Special Edition Librarian Wardrobe continues with inside info and tips from some awesome librarians you have likely seen and/or read!
These bags are what David Lee King will be bringing his clothing and technology in to ALA 2011. Here is what he has to say about packing:

Here’s what I’ll take to ALA, and what I normally take on trips:
One carry-on bag, and my laptop bag.
The carry-on bag is a Red Oxx Air Boss, from http://www.redoxx.com/ - and recommended by the fine dude at http://www.onebag.com/ - so I like to travel as light as possible (translation = I cram as much stuff as I can in that!)
I usually double up days on outfits, and only bring 1-2 pairs of shoes, so I don’t really have much stuff to take.
Laptop bag:
all the important stuff!
translation: iPad, laptop, camera, external microphones, and a bunch of cables and adapters. The iPhone’s in my pocket.

You can see David Lee King present at ALA at Seriously Social: Leveraging Social Media on Saturday, June 25, 10:30am - 12pm in the Convention Center, room 383-385.
