Well, we brought our poster to Philadelphia and by and large the responses were really supportive. People had questions about the differences between Pressible and an Institutional Repository so we explained that the whole thing about small “p” publishing is the blog format.
Another thing that came up was how the TC community might be the biggest reason for Pressible’s function. Because our users are mostly graduate students they are considering their careers and professional face in a much different way than an Undergraduate population might. It would be very interesting to see how a Pressible network might function within a department of undergraduates.
One notable poster from the conference explored how the development of Information Literacy instruction could influence our understanding of and perhaps practices within Scholarly Communication.
Another notable poster described the development of an Augmented Reality Game for teaching information literacy called “Humans V. Monsters”.
Neither of these posters have their handouts uploaded at the moment, but when they are, I will post them here. If you’d like to look at the handouts from some of the other poster sessions, you can find them here at the ACRL Site.
Take a look at our poster for yourselves over in PocketKnowledge.
