The team at Open Shelf has returned after our end-of-summer break reinvigorated. We enjoyed our “time off,” but are just as excited to meet the challenges and joys of the autumnal season.
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.
