A taste of libraries ‘out there’ . . .

The Brisbane study visit started yesterday with the amazing State Library of Queensland (SLQ) – a huge complex with a matching mission and goals to achieve it! The team of over 250 staff have such a variety of skills and roles, and match this up to connect information to as many Queenslanders as possible.  They do it in some incredible  ‘on-site, on-line & off-site’ ways.  Such a busy and generous place. One day wasn’t really enough to do the place justice.

Though I tried – it wouldn’t embed for me! So here’s the link!

An Infographic Guide to Social Media | EdTech Magazine

Having thrown myself head-long into ‘Social Media’ about 18 months ago – I am continually reaping the benefits and expanding my horizons – particularly through Twitter.

‘Horizons’ – is significant today because I’ve just begun to ‘follow’ via Twitter the National Media Consortium (#NMChz) site that produces the Horizons Report each year in June/July.  I have read and considered each of the reports for the last two years while building my capacity in information access.
