Instant Ideas and Collaboration

#uklibchat Tuesday 5th July 2016. BST: 6:30 – 8:30pm. Topic: Librarianship across borders: Connections and Collaborations.

Our July’s #uklibchat shall be discussing Librarianship across borders. In particular, we shall look deeper into how this aspect of our profession can develop strong connections and establish collaborations across library sectors and become a global opportunity for all involved.

Librarianship can link people across borders, sectors and time. Librarians are active through international networks such as #uklibchat, Career Development Group (Library Association of Ireland) and  LARK Library Applied Research Kollektive, Australian Twitter chats, International Librarians Network, and CILIP’s Special Interest Groups, and SLA Europe.

Many librarians have moved internationally for job possibilities and hope to remain connected with previous colleagues.

It opens up new possibilities within your career and library sector, providing new insights and a renewed energy for librarianship.

Within this twitter chat, Library and Information Professionals can discuss the opportunities and challenges these new networks bring. More importantly, we can give new LIS Professionals an insight into how Librarianship across borders can strengthen our profession all the more.

Agenda for the chat

Our Twitter chat will be on Tuesday the 5th of July at 6:30pm – 8:30pm BST. Please add any questions to agenda that you would like seen discussed or mentioned surrounding the theme of Librarianship across borders.
