The USAIN 2006 Conference focused on information resources for agriculture and life sciences research and practice. The conference was sponsored by the United States Agricultural Information Network in order to offer librarians a forum for sharing professional information. It provided a small, collegiate atmosphere in which to discuss diverse topics, current issues, and solutions.
The conference was hosted by Cornell's Albert R. Mann Library and was held from Sunday, October 8th, until Wednesday, October 11th, 2006, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ithaca, NY. Sessions were peer-reviewed and abstracts, papers, and posters will be published on the internet in 2007. In 2004, over 140 participants from twenty states and ten countries attended.
