So, I’ve got my plan all sorted and I’ve finally decided to do something about it: Its time to round up the troops (thats you!) and do some PROACTIVE ADVOCACY for cataloguing and metadata.
Working with Celine twitter@cjclib , we are putting together some action points to get us noticed, and by us I mean #Cataloguers #Catalogers – our knowledge and skills. Tweet @cjclib and @scarlettlibgirl and check out Celine’s blog Thing blogging
Essentially, I hope you will join with us in ideas and thoughts, but for now, we will attempt to be visible through our blogs, Cilip CIG, the Gazette and going for the rainbow, an academic journal.
Essentially we want to provoke debate internally and hopefully encourage promotion to non-cataloguers ….
This is where you come in – we need examples of what you are doing to promote our skills set (if anything at all) so that we can use these in widespread promotion and advocacy for what we do.
OVERALL AIM: skills and knowledge to be noticed and acknowledged and most of all VISIBLE. We are changing….let’s tell everyone how and why, and more importantly WHAT WE CAN DO FOR THEM.
