Presenting at conferences is one of the greatest opportunities I’ve had while working at EasyBib. Over the past 18 months, I’ve been fortunate enough to present at several conferences up and down the East Coast and Midwest, and each time has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Having an uninterrupted, open discussion on information literacy with librarians gives us tremendous insight to the day-to-day struggles you all experience everyday. In turn, we take what we learn from you and develop new tools to help. It’s a pretty awesome cycle.
I am both honored and excited to be presenting at the NJASL fall conference, Virtually Indispensable. I presented last year in Long Branch and had a wonderful experience. This year, I will be presenting bright and early on Saturday, October 5 at 9:30 AM in Memorial 303 at Rider University. The presentation, The Transition Years, will discuss the information literacy gap between high school and college students, and what librarians are doing (and what you can do!) to help bridge it. It’s not just me blabbering away — I want you to bring your thoughts, ideas and anecdotes, too!
My conference partner-in-crime and EasyBib’s Marketing & Outreach Associate for New Jersey schools, Brad Heringer, will be with me. This is our third conference together and we’ve had a blast every time. If you can’t make it to the session, we hope you will swing by the exhibition hall and say “hi” on Saturday.
Hope to see you there!
