I am back in Scotland now, and my hiatus from blogging is down to the fact that I have been busy catching up with old friends, unpacking, and getting my new flat organised before beginning the LLM next month. I was even without the internet for five whole days last week whilst I waited to have broadband installed, and it may have been the longest five days of my life!
Since getting back online, I have been doing quite a bit of reading on the current state of public libraries in the UK, reacquainting myself with New Zealand libraries, and developing some ideas for future blog posts. I have also been revisiting my Chartership portfolio, which I sort of abandoned when my sponsorship fell through, and searching for and applying for part time jobs. I love doing all of this as I sit in my new flat overlooking the Kilpatrick Hills, idly watching the sheep grazing as I collect my thoughts.
With regards to new blog posts, I have some ideas kicking around that involve information literacy models, new arrangements in Scottish school libraries, library orientations, and “non-traditional” information careers. Hopefully, I will get some new posts out soon, but in the meantime, I am off to register with my local public library! 🙂
