Theme: “Librarian Fashion: What does the way we dress say about us?”
Have you ever made a quick judgement about someone because of what they’re wearing? Sure, we have all done it. Does this mean that the way we dress at work influences how we are perceived and categorized in society?
The following post is a a guest post by Joanna Hare. Joanna is a a coordinator of Hong Kong Libraries Connect(HKLC). More information, including links to HKLC blog and project, is included at the bottom of the post.
Greetings from Hong Kong! Today I’d like to share with you a networking activity we hosted last year as a way to launch our inaugural mentoring program: Speed Mentoring!
In early 2017 we launched a pilot mentoring programas a means to nurture LIS students, and provide an opportunity for students and professionals to gather and talk about the profession in Hong Kong in an informal, low-pressure atmosphere. We wanted to host a special event to officially launch the program. To give the whole group a chance to talk to a broad range of people, as well as identify potential partnerships, we decided to coordinate a speed mentoring session.
(For anyone unfamiliar with the term, it is based on ‘Speed Dating’, where a large group of participants gather to have ‘speed dates’. Each date is usually under 10 minutes, meaning participants are able to meet lots of different potential partners and decide if they might like to meet that person again for a more formal date.)Continue reading →
After a closed eleccion in the Mentimeter survey, the four selected are the following:
Can the library do everything? Changing role of librarians and the library as a space of social inclusion
Can new librarians have a voice? Training and professional development vs. workplace reality.
Technology in libraries: event management tools, CMS and information retrieval tools; how to and best practices
How to market your library. Tools for measuring the impact and presenting the results to the public
Definitely they are great topics, and they will surely come out of them very interesting webinars.
We thank you again for your participation and we are waiting for you for the first Webinar, whose date we will confirm shortly.
Gracias a ustedes ya tenemos la selección final de temas para elegir de los Webinars de este año.
Ha sido una decisión muy difícil, ya que en primera instancia hemos tenido más de 90 sugerencias (!). Gran participación, ¡muchas gracias por tanto entusiasmo!
