Webinar: Programming for Millennials

Sara is the General Services Librarian at Upper Darby Township & Sellers Memorial Free Public Library located in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, United States.
One of her main jobs as a General Services Librarian is providing programming for millennials aged 18-35.

The general public sometimes assumes that people living with dementia, even those who once obtained a great deal of pleasure from reading, can no longer read, or if they are still able to do so, are only able to cope with basic vocabulary and simple grammar.

Julia asked Nicki Sharpe from Nelson Public Libraries about the Sign Language Story Time sessions they run at the library.

Expressions of Interest: Curriculum and Assessment Writers

New Zealand needs a strong core of professionally qualified librarians, archivists and records and information managers with the skills to lead us into a vibrant future.

In July 2014 Lincoln University’s Library, Teaching and Learning (LTL) website launched our online chat service AskLive, allowing online users to enter into a live text chat with a member of LTL staff.

I began the year by making the decision to resign from my role as a lecturer in the information and library studies team at the Open Polytechnic to take up a volunteer role on the other side of the world with the St. Lucia Public Library. This seemed like a crazy decision to a lot of people (my mother in particular), but after a period of existential crisis, a growing disenchantment with academia, and more generalised sense of professional frustration, I thought a change of scenery and role was what I needed to help me rekindle my love for librarianship.
