GLAM Blog Club October: Failure

Our theme for the September GLAM Blog Club was Discovery. From what I’ve heard a lot of our Melbourne cardies were busy discovering places less than 5k from their homes (how long has that park been there?!).

Posts matching our theme were a bit light on with the Transgressive Archivist writing about Discovering Records of Same Gender Attraction.

We also have Alissa discovering how to catalogue jigsaw puzzles.

And Bonnie reflects on the GO GLAM mini conference all the way back in January.

We can stretch the theme a little and highlight some of the other great blogs from last month:

Thesis Whisperer gave us a post about ‘discovering’ research jobs during what I’m calling ‘The Year Of Hell‘.

Transgressive Archivist also gave us a post looking at Transgender knowledge and archival practice, which is well worth a read.

Bonnie looks back at the ‘before time’, and reflects on GLAMSLAM.

Sam wrote about career planning.

Nikki reflected on five years being a librarian.

If you want your historical fix, Ellen has you covered with part two of Henry the Young King, and St Govan’s Chapel.

We don’t have a guest blogger this month (if you’d like to volunteer for a future guest blog post, shoot us an email). So you can get cracking straight away on your Blog Club post for October on the theme of Failure.
