Adria Castellucci, Librarian at the Australian Museum in Sydney, and my hilarious friend from our days studying info management at RMIT, shares what it’s been like working from home. Adria has been working on some fascinating digital engagement projects, digitisation legacy content, and virtual storytime! Adria – you’ve brightened my day, thanks a bunch!

Our November Melbourne cardiParty was a wonderful day trip to Sale, with a trip to the historical Sale Water Tower (designed by John Grainger), lunch at an impeccably restored pub called the Criterion (built circa 1865) and finally a river cruise to check out the swing bridge (also designed by Grainger).
Did we capture all of this in audio form? No- you kind of had to be there.
But we did get the wonderful tour and talk, courtesy of Sale Historical Society member Michelle Page-Cook and local Historian Peter Synan OAM. How a township got is water has never been so interesting!
The third in our special cardiCast ‘Summer Series’…
Tamara Jones, Client Services Officer, will discuss the breath of the collection at the Percy Grainger Museums, Grainger’s folk music collecting, love of towels and the Lust Branch. Chelsea Harris deep dives into the Curate your Career project and the opportunities the it offer to support diversity within the GLAM sector. Come on tour with us…
N.B: There is a early folk music recording that we were not able to include for copyright reasons. Many apologies, but we wouldn’t be GLAM if we ignored such things!
