Hi Cindy,

I attended NMM last year, and found it worthwhile. If funding weren't an
issue (big if, no?) I'd try to attend every year. It's a great way to get a
crash course on current content and meet with vendors. Although there are a
lot of vendors geared towards primary ed., there were plenty of vendors
servicing higher ed in a multitude of subject areas to keep me more than
busy. It's also good for networking. I was a fairly new librarian when I
attended (well, I still consider myself 'new', but at that point I was
really new) and it was good to be able to talk other media librarians. And,
I saved our media budget ca. $4K in discounts for that FY through purchases
made via vendors I'd been in touch with there. I stayed at the Alexis Park
Hotel, which is the conference hotel. They were undergoing heavy duty
renovations at that time. I thought they were a bit pricy, but I believe
there is a 'conference' discount.

I'd be happy to share my funding request / report if it would help anyone in
making the case to attend. Just email me off-list.

Happy Friday,

not sure if I will be attending but depending on prices I may.
Any suggestions for a first attendee would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks
