One New Thing: Reflections on research etc.
It’s conference season in my part of the world at the moment, so I’ve been lucky enough to have attended some presentations from some very experienced librarians, as well as watch what sorts of comments are being made about the conference experience and librarianship as a profession on the mailing lists. There’s a lot of discussion from all angles on how important it is for individuals to get involved in research related to the industry, finding ways to improve the ways we do things, and presenting at conferences etc - with several people reminding us that it is individuals who make up the professional bodies that have the power to implement change. For myself, as a newgrad (I graduated 4 years ago), this all seems like a fairly great challenge – but it’s good to know that I belong to a profession where there are so many people openly interested in hearing new voices. :) At some point I’d like to get a hold of Walt Crawford’s book, First Have Something to Say, to find out…well, where you might start about first having something to say!
