Carnegie Library Lab
This year I have been fortunate enough to be one of the six UK librarians to become Carnegie Partners in the second cohort of the Library Lab programme. The Carnegie UK Trust created the three year Library Lab programme to support and develop innovation and leadership in the public library sector. The programme offers funding for an innovative library project, an online learning programme to support skills development, a personal mentor to help with project management and personal development and networking opportunities with other Library Lab Partners.
I have started a new blog to document this new phase of my career.
Travelling Librarian 2016
The 2016 Travelling Librarian Award has been won by Leanne Young, Distance Services Librarian at the University of Sunderland. Leanne will be travelling to the United States to visit higher education libraries in November this year. I wish Leanne best wishes for a successful trip and hope that she has as much fun as I did.
Leanne’s Travelling Librarian study tour can be followed on her blog http://travellinglibrarian2016.tumblr.com/
