Instant Ideas and Collaboration

Upcoming #uklibchat events

Get those diaries out! In addition to our regular monthly chats, we’ve got a couple of special ‘one-off’ chats for you in February and March:

Thursday 21st February  6.30-8.30pm – Librarians and Personality

We are very excited about this chat next week, which we are running in collaboration with Rosie Hare and Andrew Preater. Rosie and Andrew will be facilitating a session on this topic at Library Camp London the following week (their session proposal can be found here), and we’re running this special #uklibchat to tie in with that. Don’t worry if you won’t be at Library Camp  London, we’d love to hear from you!

Saturday 2nd March [time TBA] – Design your own Library and Information Qualification with #uklibchat at Library Camp London

What should be studied in a modern librarianship and information studies qualification? What did you find most useful if you’ve done a Master’s, PGDip, or undergraduate degree, and what have you never used? What do current students make of the content of their courses? If it was up to you what would you bin and what would you include? Join us on Saturday 2nd March, either in person at the Camp or on Twitter, for opportunity to discuss what the core skills are across different sectors and what direction we’re heading in as a profession. (We’ll stick up an agenda and some more information about this nearer the time)

Tuesday 5th March 6.30-8.30pm – Managing Your Workload

When we get back to our usual monthly schedule, we’ll be hosting a chat on managing your workload. Share your tips and strategies, or get support if this is an area you are struggling with! We’ll also be continuing with our guest blog post series, so watch this space!
