Welcome, I am based in Melbourne Australia and currently working as a Multicultural and Diversity Librarian across four libraries of a local Public Library Service.

This blog started out during my Master’s of information studies as a chronicle of both my personal and public journey during the study process. However, over time it has transformed and continues in its own evolutionary manner.

As I am absolutely in love with poetry, street art, and creating, this blog will occasionally be more than my musings on librarianship….

All views expressed are my own.

Thank you for popping in 🙂

    I just read this and thought how articulate and interesting and relevant it all was, so I subscribed. I then returned to the top and realised you commented on my blog. Thanks! Although I don’t have much time to do this I’ll really look forward to reading your posts. Good luck with the course!

    Your blog is amazing!!!!!!!!!!! I went to Trinity College a million years ago to look at the Book of Kells, it is an amazing place. In another 18 months both my kids will be studying in the UK so with a bit of luck I might get back to Ireland then.
    I just wanted to contact you and say thanks for all the great info you posted on ETL401. I have just gone back into the forum and extracted your links to goanimate and bitstrips as I have a friend who is head of IT for our Junior School. His job is a full time position teaching IT so he is always keen to gather ideas for the kids. Many many thanks – don’t know if you are doing ETL 501 next but if so I’m sure our paths will cross again. All the best, Celeste

    I am doing the Master of Teacher Librarian course and am soooooo struggling with referencing. I put Herring’s reference in to Bing and came up with your awesome blog and reference list. I hope it’s okay with you if I cross-reference my references as it’s my first subject at uni and I’m finding it hard. I am so impressed with your blog though…one day I’ll have time to work on mine more! Thanks.

      You are more than welcome to draw whatever you find relevant from this blog. I started this blog as part of the TL subject that you are currently doing and have kept going with it. Enjoy your course 🙂

    I completely understand – I am going through a merging and meandering evolution too. Would b good to talk more about this phenomenon amongst us bloggers. I feel like we need a new name – blog sounds blah and out of whack with what we do

      I don’t blog as much as I used to but I still value finding time to create the occasional post. I’ll keep blogging through time and somehow the meander will be a journey traveled in blogland. 🙂

    I’ve actually found your blog while researching about Ferncourt Primary School. I was there in the mid to late 70s and was wondering if we know each other. If you are interested in connecting, maybe we have a story or two that we could share together.

    I always wanted to be a librarian, but ended up a teacher instead. I loved all those catalogue cards and date stamping books as well. I had my own library at home where my grandparents would come and borrow, “read” and return at least half a dozen books each night!

      Hi, I attended Ferncourt from 1977 to 1983. I live in Melbourne now. It’s nice you found this post and left a message. Happy to share a story or two.
