We are hosting the next Librarians’ Knowledge Sharing Workshop here on the UWCSEA East campus in February 2017 (you can register your interest here – https://www.uwcsea.edu.sg/centre/librarian-17) 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.]
