Reference stuff from ALA Midwinter

The ALA Midwinter Meeting took place in Denver this past weekend. Looking around, you were immediately aware of a tight economy–smaller exhibit spaces, lower attendance, and fewer give-aways. There are some interesting discussions going on about the demise of the newspaper and the impact on databases.  Greenwood is now part of ABC-Clio, which will be something to watch over the coming months.  Marshall Cavendish has a ebook collection that the Reference Services Committee has begun to review and we’ll put out the trial information later this week.
