Melissa Begg hosted a cardiParty back in June 2017, sharing her experiences during an industry placement at the Hugh M Hefner Moving Image Archive at the University of Southern California which is available to listen to on cardiCast.
In this episode of cardiShorts, Mel, who is a News Librarian and Weather Producer at Channel Nine in Melbourne, shares her experiences working from home, ironing out workflows with co-workers, accessing databases remotely, cataloguing new footage and finding archival footage for news stories. Mel takes us on a tour of the News Library and the newsroom, where she produces the weather. Thank you Mel for these fascinating insights into your work during lockdown.

Our November cardiParty was at the Mirrabooka Innovations Lab. Shana Coyle, Librarian, and Anne Boyland, Branch Librarian, talk about some of the innovative STEAM programs developed by Librarians for the Lab since its launch in 2018.
This was a special cardiParty as it was our last for the year and also our two year anniversary for newCardigan Perth! Thank you to all our Perthlings for coming along and we hope to see you in the new year.
We asked you to ask our ex President, Justine Hanna, some questions about what her life in Libraries and GLAM network is like and what her plans are for the future. We thought it fitting that our current President, Clare Presser, asks or former President these cutting questions.
What they actually did was bang on about cats, books and cheese.
And there is nothing wrong with that.

The second in our special cardiCast ‘Summer Series’…
Ioanna Nissiriou – We Need Books – and Varvara Svoronou – ECHO Refugee Library – speak with Justine Hanna about their work helping support refugees in Athens. These interviews were recorded in the We Need Books brand new Multicultural Library, which opened in early October 2018.
Both organisations are working to create inclusive communities and provide access to knowledge for vulnerable and minority groups.
The ”interlude” music was performed by a group of musician friends enjoying coffee together and was recorded live whilst eating delicious souvlaki on a tiny street in Athens.
We know this is a longer episode than usual, however we think the content is worth the listen!
If you are interested in these projects and would like to help or support their work in any way, please visit their websites for contact details.
