The Oscars are this month (having been delayed from their original February date this year) and this month at Open Shelf we want to channel the glitz and glamour by unfurling a proverbial red carpet and introducing a series of extra-special features and new columns.
Now that we’re all well rested from the long weekend, we can tackle some issues in the library community! Who is with me?
Learn marketing strategies with the example of the updated Hamilton Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) Discovery Centre; and which titles to use for science fiction themed Reader’s Advisory; explore the value of conferences, specifically the OLA’s Super Conference, to professional development; how a neo-liberal mindset can affect the library; and RDA in many metadata formats, or RIMMF. Also, what is the role of the makerspace and how to build them in a school library.
As always, please let us know what you think.
