Provides an overview of the 19th annual Computers in Libraries conference held in Washington, DC, in March 2004. The main theme of the conference was to focus on “all aspects of library and information delivery technology”. States that the popular topics of discussion were search engine updates, federated searching, blogging, RSS, social networking, institutional repositories, and portals. Notes that the conference was not for the technology beginner or librarians uncomfortable with technology. The conference had over 2,400 attendees from 14 countries and almost every US state, and 50 different exhibitors. It featured over 100 sessions, three keynotes, several pre‐conference and post‐conference workshops, and many 15‐minute “cybertour” sessions in the exhibition area.
