Fall weather, classes starting, and PaLA conference-time is in the air!
This year, I am presenting a poster with LibraryScenester called “Changing perspectives, building careers: library internships for undergrads.” Learn how I (and other interns at Millersville University Library), gained invaluable experience and the motivation to continue further study in librarianship – so, be sure to stop by on Monday between 1-2pm! 🙂
It’s good to know, too, that I’ve never stayed overnight at a conference so this is going to be an entirely new experience for me. Last year, I just walked down to PaLA which was being held about 4 blocks from my apartment – this year, I’m driving 3 hours up to State College (no worries, I’ve got playlists).
Here’s a few things that I’m bringing for my short stay at PaLA 2011:
- My trusty laptop – Mostly because I have to work on a Lit midterm – haven’t decided whether to bring it to sessions – thoughts?
- Multiple outfits– I’m terrible at choosing what to wear, hopefully my hotel roomies can help me out 🙂
- My COAT – It’s going to be freezing and raining on Sunday, so come prepared!
- iPod – for the car
- Camera – I’ve never been to State College, and I thought taking photos at PaLA would be a fun way for me to relax between sessions.
Be sure to check back for notes from the sessions – thanks for having me again, PaLA 🙂
