Instant Ideas and Collaboration
We recently started up a public list for 2013 LIS Students on our Twitter account
We’re inviting current students to let us know if they want to be added to the list (just tweet to us @uklibchat and tell us you want to be added to the list)
One of the reasons why we started #uklibchat was to help students studying Library and Information Studies courses to connect and talk to each other. When I was a student, I knew what my library school was doing, but I was super curious about what other students on other courses were doing.
We’re hoping that students can use the list, to find other LIS students and connect with them.
By visiting the list, you can see what students are talking about, sometimes it will be about cats, and knitting, and gin, and football, but sometimes ppl will also be talking about dissertations, what they’re working on etc. It’s an interesting snapshot. For example, as I’m writing this, I know that there’s a Twitter workshop happening in City University
You can also subscribe to the list from the Twitter list page (top right corner of the list page), this way, the list will be put into your twitter account, and you can visit it from there.
If you going into the List members page, you will get the names and profiles of the people who are on the list. If they’ve listed where they are studying, that information will also be there.
After this, it’s up to you. Follow people who have the same interests and inspirations, get chatting about what you’re getting out of your class.
Remember you can also tweet to us (@uklibchat) or join our #uklibchat sessions and connect to Librarians all over. We currently have 1,897 followers. That’s a lot of gin drinking cat lovers**.
