Many of our librarians attended the ACRL conference in Baltimore at the end of March. Penn State had a huge presence and even got double credit for supplying coffee to the whole conference! I participated in a really fun presentation at the conference. I submitted a proposal to SpringShare to talk about an innovative way that I am using SpringShare products and talked about my “Link in Every Syllabus” initiative.
In addition to presenting in the exhibit hall, the session was live-streamed on Facebook. It was so much fun! I felt like I was Rachel Ray giving a presentation in the exhibit hall. I used a microphone and was speaking during a session break. In addition, the presentation was easily archived by SpringShare and is visible through all of their communication channels. I thought this was a neat and different way to bring the awesome things Penn Staters are doing to a broader community. It was a little nervewracking being live streamed, but afterward, I definitely wanted to do it again.
SpringShare has been doing this for about two years and I strongly encourage others to submit a proposal if you are using SpringShare products in an innovative way.
