GLAM Blog Club – September 2019

I have a half-written blog post about space sitting in my drafts. Perhaps some of you do too. We’ve entered the ‘mid year slump’ phase of the GLAM Blog Club year, where we traditionally tend to see a downturn in the number of posts, as everyone’s new year resolution to blog more gives way to […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club August 2019

As usual, in July we gave you a GLAM Blog Club theme to help you think of something to write about. Did you see what I did there? That’s right, the theme was ‘Help’! Anne took on the theme with gusto, encouraging readers (viewers?) to help out by learning Aboriginal languages for NAIDOC Week (and […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club July 2019

Happy New Financial Year! Yes, the month is over already, and our month of radical blog posts has also come to an end. Anne started us off with some radical ideas about happiness, but on a less happy note, Lisa Dempster explored whether public libraries really are as equitable as we might like to think […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – April 2019

In March we blogged about Serendipity! Well, except for Sarah, who cheekily snuck her post in today. Sarah is making use of her librarian skillz by advising on the ‘library vision’ for her kids’ school – nice! Alissa wove an amazing story of serendipity in publishing, cataloguing and reference work that is so incredible the […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – January 2019

Last night marked the end of 2018, and all through December the GLAM community shared their thoughts on ‘End’ for GLAM Blog Club. Chloe has finished her fieldwork and her entire Masters in Library and Information Practice. Rebecca’s love of museums and exhibitions has definitely not ended: she reviewed the State Library of Queensland’s new […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club December 2018

Yes, it really is that time of year! December has arrived, and with it our final GLAM Blog Club theme for the year. Before we get to that though, let’s see what the newCardigan community wrote about change in November. Jane Cowell was on topic (even if it was probably co-incidental!) with two posts on digital […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – October 2018

Sally Turbitt is always hard at work, and September was no exception. She paid no heed to the theme (which is totally fine! It’s just a prompt to help you if you’re having trouble thinking of something to write about) and wrote early in the month about the need for LIS people to become Influencers […] Read the whole post...
