ACT Event: NLS8 wrap up

Jade, Cindy and I knew that the New Librarians Symposium was going to be amazing, that before it started we decided to organise a wrap up event. We also knew that not everyone would be able to get to NLS8, but hearing about it from those who did would be the next best thing.

On our panel we had Chery Gladman, who volunteered at the conference and was given the opportunity to attend part of the conference as an thank you for her help. We also had David Faraker and Charissa O’Sullivan from the Australian Parliamentary Library who attended as well as ALIA’s ACT State Manager, Jade Koekoe who ran her own DIY Marketing for Libraries workshop at NLS8.

As the moderator, I had the privilege of asking our panel a variety of questions surrounding NLS8. Our panel responded by providing an overview of NLS8 as well as an insight into their thoughts of the 3 day conference. We touched on librarian health and well being, DIY research, being your genuine self and the available resources of prison libraries. We also asked our panel to highlight some potential workshops and lectures that they might like to see at the next New Librarian Symposium in 2019.

Overall, the event was a huge success due in part to Cindy’s cheese and dip platter and my artistic videography through Facebook Live. If you are interested you can watch the whole panel on ALIA SNGG’s Facebook Page.


Again, thank you to all our panel members for participating and to all of our attendees.

We look forward to seeing you all at our Key Selection Criteria workshop on the 5th September 5:30pm at the NLA.
