With changes come tough decisions.
I let my heart lead my decision and decided to go anyway. I know I'd learn new stuff, but if I'm not in the classroom a lot of the sessions wouldn't be as applicable for me.
Then this week I had to take my daughter for a followup appointment at the ENT. She'd failed her hearing test at her annual check up and at our last appointment the ENT detected a lot of fluid in one of her ears. My girl had just gotten over an ear infection, so the doctor thought that fluid might be a result. She determined on Thursday that the fluid was still present and gave us an antibiotic that will hopefully clear it up. At our next appointment (the Thursday of TMC) it will be decided if she needs tubes in her ears to help with the fluid (assuming the antibiotics doesn't work). While I can miss the appointment as long as I'm available by phone, I don't feel right about not being there for her. And to piggyback on that, I honestly don't know who would take her to it. My husband has to work and I was either going to leave the kids with a friend, our babysitter, or take them to my parents'.
So there's that.
My son is also facing getting braces in the very near future. He's pretty excited about it (because he doesn't know how much it's going to hurt yet!) but I'm not... I can hear the money draining from our bank account every time we head in for an appointment.
So is spending hundreds of dollars on gas, hotels, food, and fun the best thing for me right now? And not being there when one of my children faces a doctor's appointment that could potentially mean a surgery (even though it's outpatient and done so routinely)?
My head won. I decided that TMC isn't the best choice for me right now, and I'm bummed about it. I don't know whether I'll avoid twitter for those 5 days or stay glued to it... it depends on if I want to feel sad and missing out or try to feel included.
Because you know they'll be tweeting.

the Anthropologist in the Stacks: Look to the present of libraries to see the future
In my experience and opinion (disclaimer: I am not a librarian, even as I work in an academic library), libraries are far more than the resources we provide. We who work in academic libraries are contractnegotiators, we are digital toolwranglers. We are fellow researchers with our own range of expertise, we are partners in the delivery of curriculum to our students. We are not waiting around for someone to include us in their research project, or their classroom strategies. We are doing our own research, and teaching in our own spheres of influence. We are experts on how students and faculty do their work, and we are advocates for and providers of digital and physical spaces in which that can happen. We are facilitators of interdisciplinary connections, we provide the places in which scholars encounter each other, work together, learn and explain old ideas, and brainstorm new ones. We are champions of faculty and student copyright holders, and of open access and all that it can yield to the new landscape of scholarly production. We are humanists, we are scientists, we are social scientists. We are the heart of the university.
