SALIN and ALIA SA would like to invite you to the most exciting event of the South Australian library and information year – it’s the one, the only, annual quiz night!
On Wednesday 22nd March, SALIN hosted Take the fear out of networking, a workshop providing advice on social communication for your career.
The event started with a networking bingo session to get everyone out of their seats and into conversations. Two experienced networkers then provided some invaluable advice. The event concluded with a speed-networking activity which gave everyone the chance to practice what they had learned and speak to all other attendees.
We’d like to thank our guest presenters Jennifer Osborn (Research Librarian at the University of Adelaide) and Eleanor Thomas (Acquisitions Coordinator at the University of South Australia). Here’s a summary of their advice:
Want to get to know new people and make connections, but need a push-start? This free event is for you!
Welcome to the first in what we hope will be a series of short pieces written by South Australian information professionals, sharing perspectives on the diverse people and jobs who make up our industry. This piece is written by David Bald, a treasured volunteer from the SALIN committee.
When I thought back about my life and what my dream job would be, I seemed to always come back to libraries, followed by galleries, archives and museums.
