In a few short hours, I’ll be heading to Portland, Oregon for the 2015 Academic College and Research Libraries (ACRL) conference! I’ve never been to ACRL, so I’m super pumped and somewhat overwhelmed. Lucky for me, I’m going to be staying with a pretty awesome librarian blogging over at Librarian for Life & Style, so keep an eye out for my upcoming Librarian Style Profile spotlight on her blog 🙂
What’s so awesome about this particular conference is that I got to present on a topic that I’ve really started to focus on in my own research. That being, how can we make information literacy more sustainable? How can we get students to love researching and to help them understand that research isn’t a once-and-done thing, it’s a growing, organic mass of information. And, accompanying me on the panel are some librarians that I’ve always admired, like Megan Stark and others.
So, if you’re going to ACRL this year, let me know, or come find me!
