GLAM Blog Club April 2020

Hello cardiFriends Yes, we know it’s hard to believe, but March has in fact ended. We didn’t see a lot of blog posts specifically addressing our GLAM Blog Club theme of partnerships, but some cardies found time to blog nonetheless. Glenn Harper provided a few days of updates on what ‘Corona closure’ looked like in […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club March 2020

In February for GLAM Blog Club we were feeling a little queer. Clareifications aka Reid Marginalia shared their thoughts about librarianship as performance, and going feral. Meanwhile David reminded us the Uni goes back this week, Snail suggested a little weed, Nikki shared 10 lessons from Brené Brown, and I quit Twitter and started an […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – February 2020

January’s theme was ‘Humour’, thanks to Melinda for the suggestion, and special thanks to Anne who gave us another great video and our only blog on the theme for the month, adding to our collective happiness. Ellen wrote a blog about a book that brings her joy which is very close to humour 🙂 Hugh […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – December 2019

This month’s theme intersection(s), thanks to Danielle for the theme, it was interpreted in a number of very interesting ways, sometimes surprising. Hospitals, libraries, PTSD and the importance of being trauma-informed, Nikki argues that “Trauma is a prevalent part of life and society, and librarians need to be trauma-informed and acknowledge the depth and intersectionality […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – November 2019

It’s time to take a deep breath, because the busy month of October is done and dusted. Which is also true for the theme of Question. Shall we start with Ellen, who got in the spirit of things by asking us all a question? Does Hugh want us to think more about how we discover […] Read the whole post...

GLAM Blog Club – October 2019

We were off to a slow start in September, but many secrets streamed in over the weekend! Newcomer to GLAM blog club, Kassie, thought this month’s theme was a good opportunity to fight impostor syndrome and launch their blog which they’d been working on in secret for awhile – welcome, and thank you for a […] Read the whole post...

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 – June 2019

May was our month to talk about Pleasure. Interestingly this seemed to be a difficult topic with not very many blogs posted. Could this be because it is tough to talk about work as a pleasure or are we all secretly unhappy in our GLAMRous working lives? Or maybe, sometimes, there are more pleasurable things […] Read the whole post...
