Live From Downtown Cincinnati!!

Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk! The Duke Energy Convention Center is huge. The NGS Conference volunteers met this morning at the Center for a tour and some last minute instructions before the conference begins tomorrow with Librarians' Day. The main entrance to the building is on the corner of Fifth and Elm Streets. As soon as you enter you will see an Information Booth and the Check In Booths for those who have preregistered. The layout for the Conference is simple: Exhibit hall, Check-in, and Syllabus Print-out Stations on the first floor. Conference sessions on the second floor, luncheons and dinners on the third floor.

Tip: Check the room number of the lecture you want to attend. Room numbers 201, 204, 207 and 211 are small rooms and you might want to get there early in order to find a seat. No one will be allowed to stand or sit on the floor in a lecture room. Rooms 205, 230, 232, 233 are medium sized rooms and rooms 206 and 200 are the largest.

The Convention Center is very easy to find -- only a few short blocks off of I-71 and I-75. I sent my husband out in search of parking info. He found a couple of lots that are only $4. One is on the northwest corner of Eighth & Elm; the other on the northwest corner of Seventh & Plum. The lot at Elm & Eighth has an Early Bird special: Parking is $5 if you arrive before 9am and leave between 2-6pm. Also, many of the streets in downtown Cincinnati are one way.

Coming Soon: Went sightseeing and found some sights worth seeing in Covington, Kentucky.
