Librarian and Fashion: The NPSIG invites colleagues from around the world to join its campaign called #LibrarianFashion!
How to participate ?
It’s simple, just share your photos showing off your fashion stylings at work on social networks (Twitter, Facebook or Instagram) and include the hashtag #LibrarianFashion.
These images, the NPSIG is organizing a session at the next IFLA congress on the theme: “Librarian Fashion: What does the way we dress say about us? ”
This session will include presentations and discussion where we reflect on the way we express ourselves, and the professional image that this presents to our library users, to our communities and, to a lesser extent, to our colleagues.
So, act now! Take your photos and share them with a comment and remember to use the hashtag #LibrarianFashion!
The campaign starts now and this until August 15, 2018 !
The countdown is underway!
If you have not yet signed up for the fabulous IFLAcamp #6 that we will celebrate on August 23 and 24 in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, hurry up because there are only a few days left!
We want you to be with us to share this great experience (and please, take a look at the incredible Selangor Public Library), sign in this link until June 30th
We will wait for you!
The first Webinar of 2018, organized jointly by IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group,IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and the American Library Association , had a great participation.
One of the reasons of this success could have been the alluring theme: “Can the library do everything? The changing role of librarians and the library as a space of social inclusion “.
The other reason was for the quality of the talks offered by the following professionals: Dr. Mei-Mei Wu, Kelly McElroy and Magalí Sanchez were very clear in their presentations, and they generated a series of interesting questions
For those who want to listen again to these speakers and for those who could not be present, we offer them the possibility of accessing the full Webinar
And remember that soon we will be reporting on the new Webinar: “Can new librarians have a voice? Training and professional development vs. workplace reality.”
