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

Victoria: July Social Event Wrap Up

On a chilly winter’s evening last week Victoria ALIA Students and New Graduates Group had their July social event around a cosy corner table at Captain Melville. Though the weather outside was cold, all who attended were in high spirits and enjoyed the evening thoroughly. It was wonderful to catch up with familiar faces and to meet some new ones.
Although we all know that networking is something we should be doing, it can seem daunting at times. Because of this we try to make our monthly social events a fun and pressure-free way to connect with other new and future information professionals over some food and drinks. Everyone is always very friendly and conversation is wide ranging – it’s not always work talk we promise!

Our next event will be our tool building seminar on interview skills, so keep an eye on the ALIA SNGG social channels for details and we hope to see you there!
