One of the spinoffs of conference is the chance to mix and mingle with librarians, information professionals and vendors from NZ and around the world. The discussion and conversation ranges from high level thinking to fun stuff.
But I think what is especially valuable is to get the chance to interact with CCL colleagues. We are a big institution with a variety of teams and can easily get cut off from one another. Conference gives us a chance to learn more about what each team and individual contributes, to make linkages and connections that otherwise might not happen.
I’d like to thank all my fellow CCL conference attendees – their energy, ideas, intellect and passion made me feel proud to work for Christchurch City Libraries. Kia kaha.
