SO it’s back to the daily grind today for me. I had an excellent time (as usual) at Electronic Resources & Libraries this year. It’s always an interesting conference for me, on many different levels. One one hand, I consider it one of my most valuable conferences that I attend. On the other hand, I wear so many hats at my institution that I come back from ER&L with more ideas than I could possibly implement. This leaves me feeling more torn than usual.
See, as the electronic and educational resources librarian, my primary responsibilities are automatically divided. ER&L always leaves me feeling somewhat inadequate simply because I feel like I never have enough time or support to do all that I would love to do. In some ways, this is my fault for not making time for things, but in other ways, it’s simply a result of my varied job responsibilities.
As far as wrapping up the conference sessions one by one, I’ll leave that sort of thing to my good friend Anna at the Eclectic Librarian and to the #erl11 hashtag on Twitter. I have 30 pages of handwritten notes that I’ll be going through this afternoon, so there may be another post later, but don’t count on it. 🙂 Also, you can check out the various websites mentioned (that I caught, anyway) in my delicious account.
