Thing 2

I'm finally posting on the second of the tasks from the first week, a little later than expected!  This may not be a good sign that I already have fallen a little behind, but that I suppose is the beauty of self directed courses, we can all work at our own pace.  Some weeks are going to be busier than others and it'll be harder to fit in blogging, or even getting online at all.

It's great to see how many people are all taking part in the programme, but with so many to choose from it does make it harder to decide whose blogs to take a look at.  I've been using the tags on Delicious to see who else is working in a museum, and have found a few, which makes a change from usual, normally when I meet other librarians I'm the only one working in a museum library.  Nice to see there are more of us out there after all!

Thing 1

Hi, I'm a part-time library assistant working in a museum library.

I'm brand new to blogging so I decided to take part in cpd23 as a way to introduce myself gently to the concept.  I've been following a number of library blogs for a while now as a way of staying in touch with issues in the wider library sphere, but had yet to make the leap to actually creating one of my own, until now!

I initially found out about the cpd23 programme from the LISNPN website, and was attracted by the opportunity to further my professional development, gain some new skills and hopefully make contacts with others in the library and information world.
