CILIP article: demonstrating your value

Way back in August 2012, I wrote a letter to CILIP Update in response to what I felt was a very one-sided article they’d published about outsourcing in corporate libraries. They published my letter, and invited me to write my own piece in response. I’m republishing my article here now, as enough time has passed […]

LIKE North and ILIG Workshop: Living and Working Overseas – Storify

On Tuesday 31 July, LIKE North and CILIP ILIG ran a free workshop on living and working overseas. Speakers were Lisa Jeskins, Kirsten Gallagher, Susan Mottram and Michelle Bond. I’ve put together a Storify of tweets from the evening – unfortunately I can’t embed it here, but you can view it in full by clicking […]

CPD23 Thing 10: Routes into librarianship

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. For Thing 10, many people have been detailing how/why they went into librarianship. I’m not going to do that now, partly because I’ve written about it before, and partly because one of the Things coming up in future weeks is the Library Routes Project, so […]

Thing 7: Face-to-face networking and professional organisations

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. This week’s Thing is actually two linked Things, and I consider both particularly important to my own professional development. I’m a member of several different professional associations, and find all of them valuable in different ways. One of the main things they do is give […]

A Twitter-friendly CILIP London meeting

Last week, I attended my second ever CILIP London meeting. As well as getting a chance to catch up with those members of CILIP London I already knew, and meet a few more I didn’t, I got to hear 2010 CILIP President Biddy Fisher talk about the results of the CILIP Defining Our Professional Future […]

More reflections on CILIP Yorkshire and Humberside Members Day

I’ve already jotted down some hurried first impressions of the CILIP Y&H Members Day, but I wanted to say a little bit more about the sessions I actually attended, besides the one I was co-presenting! The first talk of the day was Biddy Fisher’s welcome and keynote address. Biddy spent a bit of time talking […]

CILIP Yorkshire & Humberside members day 2010

On the train on the way home from the members day now, so thought I’d jot some thoughts down while it’s all still fresh in my mind. I’m posting this via email from my phone, which I’ve never tried doing before, so apologies if the formatting/spelling is a bit off! I’m really glad I got […]

Marketing the Information Profession: Escaping the Echo Chamber

Well, the day has finally arrived! Ned Potter (aka thewikiman) and I will be presenting our talk on Escaping the Echo Chamber this afternoon, from 2.30 to 3.30 pm, at the CILIP Yorkshire and Humberside Members Day. We really want this to be an interactive session, so we’d like to invite anyone who’s online this […]

NPC 2010: my impressions

My fellow presenters and delegates from Monday’s New Professionals Conference have already been blogging up a storm, so I’ve decided not to do a full write-up of everyone else’s talks. Instead, I’m just going to jot down a few impressions and ideas inspired by the talks I saw. If you want to see some good […]

Reflections on presenting at the New Professional’s Conference

Well, the party’s over and we’re all back to real life – what a strange feeling! I’d been looking forward to (and getting increasingly nervous about) the New Professionals Conference for so long, it’s strange now to think of it in the past tense. Yesterday was such an amazing day, and it all passed in […]
