Welp, I went and survived ODCE, but wouldn't you know it I forgot to come back here and talk about it. So here's what went down:

  • I had 100% attendance! Yes, this means my one attendee showed up.
  • There was another guy who was supposed to be there, and he didn't show up, and he left his 4 attendees and the organizers scratching their heads.
  • None of those 4 attendees came to my session.
  • I'm not surprised by this.
  • I like bullet points.

My one attendee was very pleasant and in good spirits re: being the entire audience, and it was extremely worthwhile for me to meet her as she comes from an academic library quite radically different from my own -- private university, very small, low budget (e.g., they haven't bought into RefWorks because of the staggering cost). So I think that she went away with some valuable information, and I went away similarly enlightened. All good, all good. Plus, I've been making (small) inroads locally on the Zotero front with one of my faculty for whom RefWorks isn't really a good choice.

All-in-all, I'm pleased with how it turned out.
