Wide Brown Land: Australia Travels

Hey all – I’ve mentioned my Australia travels a few times in comments, etc. I thought it might be interesting to record some details about my travels and what’s happening in Australian/Asia Pacific libraries. This is an optional presentation – perhaps it might inspire some of you for the Director’s Brief.

Watch the Panopto Lecture here.

Also, just saw a Twitter conversation that pointed to this article about a remote library dropping Dewey to use local indigenous concepts instead.

    Thank you for sharing this! So many great ideas: the market place (I really did think it was a bookstore), the Ivercargill marketing campaign, and the 5 word book review! That one had me laughing out loud, and I am unabashedly stealing it to implement it tomorrow.

    Thank you for sharing about this incredible and action-packed trip Down Under! I loved the part about the robot assisting the library; it would be interesting to experience that service first hand.
