The ALA 2008 Annual Conference is fast approaching. This year it’ll be in Anaheim. The conference starts next Thursday (June 26th) and goes through July 2nd. Like in the very recent SLA 2008 Conference, I couldn’t find presentations that would be of particular interest to the federated search community. Federated search vendors, though, are better represented in the exhibitor booths:

  • Auto-Graphics, Inc. (Booth #1366)
  • CARE Affiliates (Booth #466)
  • Ex Libris (Booth #1694)
  • Serials Solutions (Booth #1652)
  • TDNet (Booth #1333)
  • U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Scientific & Technical Information (OSTI) (Booth #2471)

Note that Deep Web Technologies will be co-exhibiting with OSTI.

Update 6/23/08: Please see Peter Noerr’s comment on this blog post for vendors I missed.

    Note also that a number of publishers, aggregators and ILS companies will be showing their products:

    Cengage/Gale (Booth #1400)
    Collexis (Booth #1988)
    Innovative (Booth #1218)
    SirsiDynix (Booth #1678)
    Swets (Booth #500)

    The above are the ones I know of as they are some of our partners and utilise Muse technology for their individual products.

    And you overlooked federated search suppliers in:

    Index Data (Booth #466)
    Proquest (SerialsSolutions (Booth #1652) & Webfeat (Booth #1638)
