A week of August is gone already and soon we’re all going to lament, “Where did the summer go??” Or, if you’re in the land down under, you might cheer, “Yay, winter is over!” Regardless, Brain-Work is taking a bit of a break for the remainder of August and will return in September with our current roster of blog writers eager and ready to go. We’ll have some familiar faces as well as some new additions to the lineup. In 2016/17, we’re going to be blogging like never before! If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at writing a blog post but don’t want the commitment of your own blog, consider writing for Brain-Work. You can contact me to sign up or if you have any questions. Info for contributors is here: Brain-Work info.
A reminder that the C-EBLIP Research Network is in recruitment mode. The Research Network is an international affiliations of institutions who support librarians as researchers and/or are interested in evidence based library and information practice. You can find out more information or fill out a form to join here: C-EBLIP Research Network.
And the C-EBLIP Fall Symposium: Librarians as Researchers is set to go on Wednesday, October 12, 2016. Set in the lovely Paris of the Prairies, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the third annual symposium features a networking breakfast, an international keynote speaker, a single track session, and lots of time for meeting, greeting, talking, and sharing. Registration will open closer to the end of August, so plan now to attend. You can find out all kinds of Symposium stuff here: C-EBLIP Fall Symposium
Teaser: Selinda Berg and I are cooking up an exciting new C-EBLIP Research Network initiative. I can’t say much more at this point, but be on the look out for something new coming this fall.
