Thing 23: Final reflection

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. I made it! I made it to the final Thing! Oh, I never thought I’d get here… There are a few tasks for this Thing, so I’m going to work through them sequentially: 1. Reflect on the programme in general and what you want to […]

Thing 22: Volunteering

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. This Thing is another potentially controversial topic: volunteering. Obviously, this is a rather thorny issue for public libraries at the moment! I don’t think I’m going to wade into the debate now, other than that I think that replacing professional services with volunteers is generally […]

Thing 21: Promoting yourself

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. I absolutely love the CPD23 post on this Thing – even if I were not doing CPD23, I’d still want to bookmark that post for future reference when applying for jobs. It’s an excellent summary of all the things to think about when job hunting, […]

Thing 20: Library Routes

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. I’m going to cheat a little bit for this Thing! Since I wrote the CPD23 post for it, I’m just going to link to that, and to my original Library Routes post – together, they really say all I have to say on this topic. […]

Thing 19: Catch-up week & integrating the Things

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. This Thing was initially supposed to be a “catch-up”, to give us all a chance to catch our breath and look back on all the Things that went before it. Well, I got rather behind with my Thing blogging, so am writing this seven weeks […]

Thing 18: Screencasts and podcasts

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. For this Thing, we were asked to explore screencasting and podcasting. This may be cheating slightly, but I’m going to skip the podcasting bit: I don’t see any particular need for making podcasts in my current job (although I can see how they’d be a […]

Thing 17: Prezi and Slideshare

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. This Thing is all about presenting information. I’ve a small amount of experience with both tools explored here, so no new work to do – instead, I’ll share some of my thoughts on what I have and haven’t found useful with these tools. Prezi Prezi […]

Thing 16: Advocacy

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. There’s already been some controversy around this Thing! I’m not going to open up an argument again, just suffice to say that I do agree that it is every librarians job, regardless of sector, to advocate for the profession; and to add as a side […]

Thing 15: Attending, organising and presenting at events

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. I am a big fan of this Thing – I’ve done a lot of attending events, a small amount of speaking at them and a tiny amount of organising – and I’d love to do more of all three! Attending My favourite of the three […]

Thing 14: Organising your references

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. Well, this is going to be a short post! While I like the idea of the referencing tools recommended in this Thing, and certainly wish I’d known about them when I was doing my MSc, I really have no use for them right now. As […]
