Closing Session and End of Conference Poll-a-Palooza: Part II

Do you find yourself brimming with questions, new found opinions, and a renewed spark for librarianship at the close of the Charleston conference?  Before you head back to your library to share your experiences, join us for a lively wrap-up session.  The presenter will use Poll Everywhere to create immediate data visualizations of audience answers to various key issues significant to libraries and content providers.The session will include questions relevant to the 2015 Charleston conference, as well as questions submitted through the Charleston website.  Topics will vary based on conference sessions and attendee submissions.  The presenter will create a fun, open atmosphere by interspersing library-related questions with some wildcards, such as “what is your favorite restaurant in Charleston” or “which author would you most like to meet in the Francis Marion lobby”? This session will be entertaining, animated, and informative, all in the spirit of conference camaraderie.  Attendees will be inspired to interact with one another and to contemplate on their experiences at Charleston.  They will gain insight and knowledge into how their views compare with those of their peers, and they will leave feeling energized and more confident in the awareness that they are not alone in their opinions.  There is a sense of solidarity that comes from participating in group discourse, and the use of Poll Everywhere will facilitate this effectively. 

Following the Poll-a-palloza, Derek Law will give an end-of-conference summary.
