Rank #1: Podcast Episode 20: Pamela McGowan talks about SDGs, chasing leadership opportunities and Orlando Bloom.

Podcast cover
Read more

Pamela McGowan is the Team Manager of Libraries at Townsville City Council. After being reminded about the magic of libraries when teaching in a remote Indigenous school in the Northern Territory, she completed a Graduate Diploma of Teacher Librarianship and a Masters of Information and Knowledge Management externally while working as an ICT classroom coach.

As someone who’s always keen to try different things, Pamela’s experience in libraries includes coordinating a literature festival, creating ePublishing workshops, conducting outreach events to businesses and leading teams through different changes. In all of these roles, meeting community needs and encouraging learning have been a strong focus.

Pamela was selected to be part of INELi Oceania Cohort 2 as an innovator; which has been a life changing experience due to the networks that have been formed within the Pacific region and the potential for the library community to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

In her spare time, Pamela enjoys following American sports (especially the Seattle Seahawks), discovering new places and reading thousands of board books with her son.

Side note: Pamela’s son has had 11393 books read to him and counting! OMG!

Podcast cover
Read more

Alissa McCulloch, perhaps better known by her twitter handle @lissertations, is the most passionate and enthusiastic cataloguer you’ve ever met. She’s a new librarian with big dreams about the future of library metadata, and how it might be used to help people feel welcomed, supported and empowered by libraries. Alissa works to decolonise the GLAM sector and support the labour of library workers in times of austerity. Outside of libraries, Alissa can be found creating zines, cataloguing beer cans, and taking trams to nowhere. She blogs at lissertations.net.

In this episode we discuss:

Rank #5: Podcast Episode 24: Turbitt & Duck with special guests at the 2018 NSW Public Libraries Association conference

Podcast cover
Read more

Turbitt & Duck travelled to Coffs Harbour in November to record live interviews with delegates and keynotes at SWITCH 2018. SWITCH is the NSW Public Libraries Association’s annual conference with delegates from all over NSW in attendance. There’s a focus on building partnerships with local councils, advocacy, library new builds and renovations and library funding. Take a look at #SWITCH2018 on Twitter to see the wide ranging issues and work being done in NSW public libraries.

We spoke to Councillor Dallas Tout from the NSWPLA Executive Committee, Paula Kelly Paull from Hobsons Bay City Council, Gavin Carnegie from Local Government Professionals Australia NSW, Theresa Jude from Lachlan Shire Library Services and Robert Knight, Executive Director, Riverina Regional Library.

In this episode we discussed:

And here’s homework from Gavin Carnegie!

Gavin suggests saying yes to everything is not the answer to creating opportunities. It’s about being selective and choosing projects, activities, roles that pique your existing interests. @UrzilaCarlson’s TED talk is his inspiration for this. https://t.co/VBAmfmNYG2 #SWITCH2018
