Are you, or do you know of, a librarian in the USA currently working towards Chartership? If so Kelly and I would love to hear from you! We’re getting together in New York City on Saturday 13th October at 2pm to talk about the trials and tribulations of Chartership, and the added dimension of doing it all from a distance. If you’re able to join us please do come along, and we’re also interested to know of any others who are working towards Chartership elsewhere in the USA. Continue reading

On March 20th I attended an event about mind mapping presented by Susie Kay. I’ve heard Susie speak before and was looking forward to hearing her again, though I must admit I was feeling a little dubious about the subject matter. Sure, I’d made mind maps once or twice before, and found them quite handy, but mostly I’d have described myself as a list sort of person.  Consequently I didn’t have an entirely open mind at the outset, but I was willing to be convinced… Continue reading

Last night I tuned into twitter to take part in the 2nd #chartership chat. As for the inaugural session, @joeyanne set up an online archive for all the tweets, so whilst I’ll try to summarise the main points here do take a look if you’re interested to see everything that came up. Scanning down the list, I think we managed around 216 tweets during the hour – not as impressive as last time but still not bad! Continue reading
