As you're planning your SLA 2005 Annual Conference activities, please remember to visit the page about the SLA News Division's conference activities. The "top secret" location of the News Division Suite is there, as are instructions for making arrangements for the Toronto Star and CBC Libraries Tours and other useful information.

If anyone is interested in blogging in this space during the conference (and/or now and after the conference, too), please let us know.
