ALIA New Librarians' Symposium 9 (NLS9), 5-7 July 2019 Adelaide: collaborate deviate innovate
This presentation (PowerPoint slides) supported the talk on the skills and knowledge that different career-types can bring to modern libraries.
In 2018, library services are more than the provision of resources to the community. Libraries are a place of customer-facing learning, which can be influenced by the skills and knowledge of the team. What elements can a criminologist bring to programs to decrease antisocial behaviour in lower socio-economic communities? How many tools and techniques can an engineer introduce to programs and activities? What skills can a stand-up comedian bring to customer service and children’s activities?
