Great Expectations

I was asked to share some of my pre-conference thoughts from my perspective as a first-timer.  I think the key to me having a positive and fulfilling experience at SLA is to manage my expectations.  In no particular order, I have compiled a list of what I expect from my conference experience. I’m looking forward to comparing it with my debriefing wrap up!

  • I expect to be completely overwhelmed with information, names, terminology and lingo.
  • I expect the aforementioned elements to become clear to me in varying amounts of time – minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years (well, hopefully not years).
  • I expect to be physically and mentally EXHAUSTED…but giddy with freshman excitement.
  • I expect to meet many new people with whom I will develop a rapport and we’ll be BFFs! (Uh, I mean…we’ll keep in touch over e-mail and be professional acquaintances.)
  • I expect to enjoy Denver and wonder why I have never visited before this conference.
  • I expect to blog a lot (SLA Blog and Library Sherpa) wink-wink, nudge-nudge
  • I expect to come away from this conference with confidence and enthusiasm which will serve me well when I’m back in my library.
  • I expect to be sad to leave Denver…but totally psyched for Seattle!!

See you soon!
