A network for new and aspiring library professionals
We are pleased to announce that our next event ‘NLPN: Voted by you’ (sponsored by CILIP ILIG and Bolinda) will be held at The University of Manchester Library on Saturday 20th October from 10am-4.15pm. The content of this event is based on your feedback from previous events and a recent twitter poll.
The day will include the following interactive workshops and presentations:
Tips and tricks from a seasoned interviewee presented by Natasha Chowdory
Join Natasha for an interactive session that will enable you to approach your interviews with a new mind-set. Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone!
Cataloguing: a brief introduction presented by Helen Monagle and Siobhan Cottam.
In this session you will learn the basic principles of cataloguing and have a go at using online software to catalogue books. This interactive session will provide you with the opportunity to ask some basic catalogue queries and learn from the experiences of the presenters as they share some tricky cataloguing scenarios they have faced.
For this session we recommend that attendees bring a device and something to be catalogued e.g. a book or DVD, in order to take part. We will be using LibraryThing for the practical element and recommend that attendees create an account in advance.
