23 Things for Professional Development

At yesterday's plenary meeting in Dundee, Karen drew our attention to this course...and encouraged us to take part!
So if you fancy the challenge you can find the details here:

Cellos and Bellows, Friday 18th May

You might have read in Information Scotland about the series of tweetups in Glasgow organised by Anabel Marsh. Although these originated with a few librarians meeting up on Twitter, you don’t have to be on Twitter to join in  - all welcome. To keep up with what is happening, you can follow the Glasgow Library Tweetups blog.

There seems to be definite scope for collaboration here, for example publicizing each other’s events. In this spirit, the next tweetup is “Cellos and Bellows”, a visit to the libraries of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Glasgow Piping Centre on Friday 18th May. If you’d like to attend the lunchtime concert at the Conservatoire, it starts at 13.00 pm, so please meet Music & Academic Services Librarian Karen McAulay at 12.45 pm beside the CafĂ©-Bar. Ticket price £9.50. A tour of the Royal Conservatoire’s Whittaker Library at 14:15 will be followed by a walk across the road to the Piping Centre at 15:00 for coffee, a tour of the Piping Centre and its newly-refurbished Library, and Noting the Tradition Project Officer James  Beaton’s ‘Come and try the pipes’ session. This tour ends at 4.30pm.

To join, go to the SLAINTE events calendar - you can sign up for either or both tours if you wish.
