We envisioned this year’s July issue to be an inaugural attempt at creating a contributor-driven “unconference issue.” And while this month’s issue is a compact one, I think its contents speak to the spirit of an unconference—user-driven conversations and knowledge-sharing that span a wide range of topics, media and scope, engaged with at our own pace.
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.
