    Podcast Episode 25: Kat Moody talks about GLAM collaboration beyond networking, honesty and why reaching out is so important.

    Kat Moody is a reformed museum professional who works in public libraries and has been adventuring around the GLAMR sector since the nineties. In the United Kingdom, Kat worked in the libraries and / or archives of various military museums and in New Zealand, after various adventures, is now based with Christchurch City Libraries.







    In this episode we discussed:







    * Tūranga – Christchurch Central Library.* Caring for the communities following the Canterbury earthquakes: How the GLAM sector responded. * FingerTip Library at Christchurch City Libraries.* National Digital Forum.* Canterbury 100.* Reflections on the commemoration of World War One conference.* #KnitWithTurbittNDuck* “Empty” – by Kat Moody for Library Whisperers.* Follow Kat’s crochet porgs on Instagram – @porgsofrangiora* Wartime Knitting Revived.* “A Bit of a Stink” – Kat Moody for Christchurch City Libraries.







    Kat’s suggestion for our listeners:







    Do: something you enjoy at work, or go outside for a nice walk at lunch time, take some time to think or reflect, or have a play on Trove or Papers Past and find a random story about library toilets!

    Podcast Episode 24: Turbitt & Duck with special guests at the 2018 NSW Public Libraries Association conference

    Podcast Episode 24: Turbitt & Duck with special guests at the 2018 NSW Public Libraries Association conference

    Turbitt & Duck travelled to Coffs Harbour in November to record live interviews with delegates and keynotes at SWITCH 2018. SWITCH is the NSW Public Libraries Association’s annual conference with delegates from all over NSW in attendance. There’s a focus on building partnerships with local councils, advocacy, library new builds and renovations and library funding. Take a look at #SWITCH2018 on Twitter to see the wide ranging issues and work being done in NSW public libraries.







    We spoke to Councillor Dallas Tout from the NSWPLA Executive Committee, Paula Kelly Paull from Hobsons Bay City Council, Gavin Carnegie from Local Government Professionals Australia NSW, Theresa Jude from Lachlan Shire Library Services and Robert Knight, Executive Director, Riverina Regional Library.







    In this episode we discussed:







    * NSWPLA and what they do.* Condobolin Library renovation.* The Geography of Yes – Leonee Ariel Derr* Renew Our Libraries – if you live in NSW, please take the time to contact your local MP and ask them for more funding for NSW public libraries!







    And here’s homework from Gavin Carnegie!









    Gavin suggests saying yes to everything is not the answer to creating opportunities. It’s about being selective and choosing projects, activities, roles that pique your existing interests. @UrzilaCarlson’s TED talk is his inspiration for this. https://t.co/VBAmfmNYG2 #SWITCH2018— Turbitt & Duck 🐟🦆 (@TurbittNDuck) November 29, 2018

    Podcast Episode 22: Maeva Masterson talks about classifying library collections, culturally safe spaces and airconditioning.

    Podcast Episode 22: Maeva Masterson talks about classifying library collections, culturally safe spaces and airconditioning.

    Maeva Masterson is the Manager Library Sector Services at Northern Territory Library. Maeva began her career in the Australian Army before making the jump to library services. With more than 15 years’ experience in working in both remote locations and internationally, Maeva is a results-focused library services professional providing strategic advice enabling Northern Territory Libraries to become sustainable leaders with a focus on best practice and innovation.

    In this episode we discuss:



    * Galiwin’ku in East Arnhem Land

    * Innovative pilot in Galiwin’ku Community Library: classifying library collections according to local cultural concepts

    * Galiwin’ku library closes book on the Dewey Decimal System to prioritise Yolngu culture

    * Northern Territory public libraries



    Homework from Maeva:



    * Visit your local library or workplace and think about the following questions:

    * What does your library reflect?

    * What world view is expressed?

    * Does your library only reflect the standard Australian (or New Zealand or American) world view or does it have the capacity to reflect back to marginalised members of the community?

    * Does the space recognise that their world views and knowledge are just as important?

    Podcast Episode 21: Edward Luca talks design thinking, why practitioner-researcher collaborations are important and Kate Bush

    Podcast Episode 21: Edward Luca talks design thinking, why practitioner-researcher collaborations are important and Kate Bush

    Edward Luca is a library practitioner and researcher. He spends most of his time as Manager, Academic Services at the University of Sydney Library, but also dabbles in teaching, research, and anything shiny that appear in front of him. Edward describes research as his side hustle and he is actively involved in research on user experience, scholarly communication practices, embedded librarianship and systematic review processes.

    Edward speaks eloquently about why librarian-researcher collaborations are crucial for knowledge sharing and the importance of co-authorship on academic papers in demonstrating library impact in research.

    In this episode we discuss:



    * Library Signage By Design: A Design-Thinking Approach to Library User Experience

    * Complete list of Edward’s research and writing.



    Recommendations from Edward:



    * Kate Bush – Hounds of Love, Side 2. Don’t forget candles and/or bath!

    * Think about your job. Think about one particular problem or particular thing that irks you and chat to your clients about it. What do they think? Is it a problem for them? What would make things better?

    Podcast Episode 20: Pamela McGowan talks about SDGs, chasing leadership opportunities and Orlando Bloom.

    Podcast Episode 20: Pamela McGowan talks about SDGs, chasing leadership opportunities and Orlando Bloom.

     

    Pamela McGowan is the Team Manager of Libraries at Townsville City Council. After being reminded about the magic of libraries when teaching in a remote Indigenous school in the Northern Territory, she completed a Graduate Diploma of Teacher Librarianship and a Masters of Information and Knowledge Management externally while working as an ICT classroom coach.

    As someone who’s always keen to try different things, Pamela’s experience in libraries includes coordinating a literature festival, creating ePublishing workshops, conducting outreach events to businesses and leading teams through different changes. In all of these roles, meeting community needs and encouraging learning have been a strong focus.

    Pamela was selected to be part of INELi Oceania Cohort 2 as an innovator; which has been a life changing experience due to the networks that have been formed within the Pacific region and the potential for the library community to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

    In her spare time, Pamela enjoys following American sports (especially the Seattle Seahawks), discovering new places and reading thousands of board books with her son.

    Side note: Pamela’s son has had 11393 books read to him and counting! OMG!

    In this episode we discuss:



    * Yuendumu

    * INELI-Oceania program

    * Australian government page about SDGs

    * ALIA SDG toolkit

    * National Archives of Fiji

    * Opeta Alefalo keynote from #APLIC18

    * CityLibraries Townsville FB page

    * CityLibraries Townsville website 

    * Townsville City Council Orlando Bloom post (the comments are also amazing)

    * Twitter thread from Pamela!
