conferencelogo"I presented Steaming up the Circ Desk: Are Ebooks Changing What our Patrons Read? at the 2012 IUPUI Joint Research Conference. Participating in the conference helped me in several different ways. First, the deadline pushed me to do the work for my directed research project/ALA presentation earlier than I would have otherwise, which probably saved me a lot of anxiety. It also provided a safe atmosphere for me to present my research, get a dry run of what worked in the presentation and what didn’t, and plenty of time to make revisions before presenting my research to a wider audience.
