my ACRL 2013 schedule

I’ve been scrambling to try to collect my thoughts before the delicious and terrifying onslaught that will be ACRL. Now that my poster is printed (see a sneak peek here) and the handouts are almost done, I’ve turned my attention to creating a skeletal schedule to structure my days. I want to have a paper copy, not just the MyPlanner thing–I’m not very good at using my electronic devices and I always run out of batteries. Though I fully expect to break the following schedule, I thought I’d share it just the same.
