If you’re using Twitter to share your observations during the meeting, or want to follow along with what people are thinking in real time, you may want to be aware of these hashtags:
#mlanet14 – the overall hashtag for the meeting, to be used in any/all tweets
#nlmtheater – for updates from and about NLM Theater sessions and the resources/changes presented there
And some unofficial, fun activities at MLA:
#mlanet14bingo – for the card game being organized by @mascher to help us meet new people at MLA. Tweet a pic of your completed BINGO card with the hashtag #mlanet14bingo to win. “Complete” in this case means your full card is completed, not just one line.
#drinkingsig – “unofficial and completely unsanctioned,” the rules are that “any time two or more MLA members are together and drinking (even water), it constitutes a #drinkingsig meet up.” When you purchase a $5 #drinkingsig button from @LaMedBoheme73, proceeds go to the MLA Scholarship Fund.
You do not need a Twitter account to follow along with what people are posting with these hashtags, simply click on the links above or search Twitter for the tags.
If you’re aware of other hashtags for various events and programming during MLA ’14, leave them in the comments!
