‘I'm A Librarian’: The Superhero Approach To Engaging With Your Profession!
NewSpecial

Wed 19 Apr 2017

Description

Library and information professionals across all sectors are often involved in innovative and pioneering projects and initiatives, particularly in the fields of: library and information science; education, teaching and learning; research support; and scholarly communications. However, this work and practice often goes unnoticed by the outside world and in many cases the environments internal to the library itself.

This interactive workshop, led by Leo Appleton from Goldsmiths, University of London and Wendy Morris from Kingston University, will enable participants to consider their day to day work, how this has led to professional achievement and build their confidence in sharing these outcomes beyond the library echo chamber. Participants will then be invited to think about how they might celebrate such successes by sharing their best practice through various activities including conferences, publication and social media. By the end of the workshop participants will be aware of some of the platforms available to them and how professional pride and success can potentially be celebrated.
