Feedback on some professional visits in Perth

Last week Barb Reid and I did a fairly impromptu 3-day visit to Perth, thanks to Scoot fares too cheap to ignore, some end-of-year extra money, and the hunt for a keynote speaker.

We are hosting the next Librarians’ Knowledge Sharing Workshop here on the UWCSEA East campus in February 2017 (you can register your interest here – and wanted to approach Brad Tyrrell at Scotch College in Perth as a possible keynote and pre-conference workshop leader on Libguides.  (The answer is Yes — he is going to be one of our featured speakers, with Dianne McKenzie the other.)

The trip was a perfect chance to also visit some libraries, which Brad helped arrange.  We ended up seeing 7 school libraries, 2 public libraries, 1 university library, and 1 literature centre.

I’ll start by sharing my photos — and Barb has more.  We’ll each summarize our big take-aways later, e.g., I’m working on a Storify of the highlights and interest points for me (though what I chose to photograph is a big clue).  [Update: May 27: I opted to just annotate the photos in Google Photos – a pseudo-Storify feature.] [Update: May 30: Fixed the “shed” link below.]

Happy viewing!

[Update: May 28]  Here we are with Jenny Doust (whom we met at the last Librarians’ Knowledge Sharing Workshop — in KL) at the Fremantle Literature Centre.
