Expect More: NYLA-SSL 2014 Conference

One of the best parts of my job is traveling to conferences to meet with librarians. It’s an awesome opportunity to better understand the needs of librarians today, how our tools help with that, and how we can improve them. It’s always a great learning experience!

Rachel Wolfe, NY School & Library Rep

Needless to say, I’m super excited to head up to Syracuse, NY, on Thursday for the annual New York Library Association’s Section of School Librarians (NYLA-SSL) conference! I’ll be there with my colleague, Rachel Wolfe, who works with librarians and school districts throughout New York State.

Make sure to stop by our booth to say “hi” and grab some free swag. You can also enter to win a free year-long subscription of EasyBib for your school—find out how at booth 21!

I also have the honor of presenting a breakout session at NYLA-SSL this year. I hope you can join me on Friday for “Don’t Fall Into the Gap: Understanding Information Literacy Struggles Between High School & Higher Ed” at 1:45 PM. I’ll be discussing what new research shows about how high school students tackle research, and how their collegiate counterparts differ (if at all).
