The Library Automation News Cycle

Typically, news in the library automation industry tends to be clustered around major conferences, and larger conferences tend to attract bigger news. The American Library Association Annual Conference (held each summer) and the Midwinter Meeting (held early in the year) have traditionally stood out as the venues where library automation vendors make big announcements. The conferences of the Special Library Association and the Public Library Association often provide the backdrop for products or services oriented to those particular sectors.
