ACRL Conference 2017

I attended the ACRL 2017 Conference this year, which was from March 22-25. I don’t have any deep, inspiring, or even particularly composed thoughts on it (at the moment), I just want to put together a quick post to mark the event.

I wrote a re-cap of my conference experience for the NMRT Notes blog, as did my NMRT colleague Mandi Goodsett. Check out my NMRT post for thoughts on the Critlib Unconference, some of my favorite ACRL Conference sessions, and general advice for attending ACRL in the future.

For a more detailed account of my time at the conference, I put together a Storify of my tweets (and occasional IG post). At conferences I often use Twitter as a note-taking mechanism and consistently try to provide links to and pictures of the resources provided during presentations.

I presented a poster session, titled “Teacher efficacy and its implications for instructional librarians.” As part of my masters program in applied learning and instruction, I conducted a literature review on intervention models impacting teacher efficacy beliefs in k-12 teachers. For this poster, I discussed results of that literature review and drew connections to instruction in academic libraries. Picture below, though it will also soon be added to my institution’s repository.

Lastly, here are the conference proceedings.
