Just a quick post about NLS4, as today is a very busy one for me. Also I really want to get my head around some of the ideas presented, and let them sink in. First up, it was absolutely wonderful. Great conference, great presentations, great social networking, great food!
If I could sum up what I have taken away with me in two words it would be proactive participation. This theme was evident in nearly all of the presentations, and really spoke to me. I have applied to be part of an eporfolios study at QUT in Brisbane, so that is my first step!
I also got to meet some fellow bloggers who I had been reading and communicating with! Thanks to Librarian Idol , Connecting Librarian and Better than Cheesecake ie Andrew, Michelle and Susanne for graciously sharing your passion so freely. Also to the Shanachie boys for once again sharing the importance of telling stories and keeping stories and making the stories count.
It is hard to articulate just how amazing it was for me to be part of the NLS4 and to just soak up the enthusiam, joy and hope for the future that new grads bring to the industry. I am very proud to be a part of that, and I hope my zeal and enthusiasm never wane.
