Knee deep in EBP

I am full blown into the world of Evidenced Based Practice. I actually felt like a real teacher today. I put almost 10 minutes of lecture into my 1 hour 20 minute class. My throat was killing me. But the students made me so proud. It was my second time working with them and they could do so much! The systematic reviews and original research articles they found were awesome. Tracking down full text using serials solutions, using the PMID number to cheat and fill out the Interlibrary Loan form faster - it was awesome.

UNYOC conference

I went to my first UNYOC chapter conference last week. It was in Ithaca, so I just went down for the day. Gorgeous time of year to visit. I was busy taking notes, learning new acronyms and feeling so, so green. I did meet two of the librarians from U of R, which was great and a nursing librarian from Canada. Hopefully, we can swap some lesson plans.
Above picture is the keynote, the room was very cold - hence the pink scarf.

Forgot my own username

So its really bad when you forget your gmail account so you can't even log in to your own blog. At convocation we had a tech guru come give a demonstration and she said something along the lines of how many people have blogs? How many write regularly? My hand shot down fast. Okay by me.

Just means that I have been busy.

My Mom's online

My Mom got the internet again, so everyday I send her some stuff from the feeds I follow. She likes the ones from docutiker the best.
