    Figuring out your ALA schedule? The ALCTS Metadata Interest Group is searching for bloggers to report on selected sessions at ALA Midwinter on the Metadata Interest Group's Blog.  Planning to attend a session or already reporting on a session? Think about blogging it here too or let me know where I can link to your report.  Don't feel like blogging?  At least come check out the Metadata Interest Group blog and see if any of the sessions would be of interest to you to attend.  There are direct links to the new ALA Conference Scheduler so it's easy to plan your
