And that’s a wrap (with a pretty Christmas ribbon on top) for the #12daysofGLAMR

On the 30th November the ALIA NewGrads group challenged us to take part in the #12daysofGLAMR. The task: reimagine each day of the 12 Days of Christmas on any social media channel. In true library style there were plenty of puns, books, brooches and cats galore! While the end it was @mikeyhawkes who was victorious with a massive 259 points and @lawley_y and @lib_idol coming a respectable second and third, I think that we can agree that creativity was the overall winner. Here are just some of the amazing posts from the competition.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me….
A partridge in a pear tree

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Two turtle doves

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Three french hens

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Four calling birds

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Five golden rings

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Six geese are laying

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Seven swans swimming

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Eight maids milking 

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Nine ladies dancing

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Ten lords leaping

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Eleven pipers piping

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
Twelve drummers drumming

ACT: Article Club Wrap-up

article_club_artefacts_705x360_events_page

Last Thursday night some individuals with an interest in Museums, Archives and Libraries gathered to discuss an article called Artefacts and archives: Considering cross-collection knowledge networks in museums. It was a merry band with beer in hand that, as the article suggested, explored how collections in various cultural institutions have become decontextualised. Through no fault of our own GLAM (Gallery, Library, Archive, Museums) professionals can’t always tell the full story of the artefacts in their care, this is because the way we separate artefacts from letters, journals or photos (museums from archives) means we don’t readily have the information available to make those connections in our collections.
