Recently Pixie and myself spoke with the the NLS8 Co-conveners Sally @sallyturbitt and Amy @amywalduck from Turbitt & Duck @TurbittNDuck We were very grateful for the opportunity to talk with them about NLS9. These are two very talented women who inspired us to put in a bid for NLS9 in Adelaide. If you don’t follow then already then I highly recommend that you do and spend some time listening to their other fantastic podcasts.
We were both a bit nervous but these two friendly faces made us feel very much at ease. It felt as though we were just catching up with old friends.
I first met these two at NLS8 (well actually we met on twitter before that). I recommend to anyone wanting to come to NLS9 that you spend time making connections on Twitter before the symposium. It is a great way to meet and talk libraries with people in a really easy and friendly space. It really helped me when I got to NLS8 and made me feel more comfortable socialising.
To get you started have a look at the @TurbittNDuck post here. They asked everyone to tag GLAM friends and colleagues and there are some incredible people here to follow and engage with.
Welcome to the website for the 9th New Librarians’ Symposium. NLS9 will be held in the lovely city of Adelaide. We are delighted that our city has been chosen to host the symposium in 2019. Pixie, James and our committee look forward to showing you what we are putting together.
We know we have a tough act to follow after the fantastic NLS8 in Canberra 2017. For those of us who attended we were incredibly impressed with the content, how well the event was organised and the work they put in behind the scenes to make a smooth transition for our team. We thank Amy, Sally and the whole NLS8 committee for the work they put in.
We aim to build on this good work and not only showcase what Adelaide has to offer but also hear what everyone else is up to around the country.
There is a lot more content to come and we will be adding more and more as time goes on, so check back to see whats new. For now, follow us on Twitter and Instagram for all NLS9 news and updates.
