I shouldn’t even be writing this. I said I needed to go to bed earlier because I’ve been a bit tired lately, but it’s 10.11pm and I’m just beginning a post on working through the following question:
What topic should I write about with a colleague for ALIAlibtec11 in Perth next year?
Deadline is in 7 days. Eeep!
So. To recap, it is 7 days ’til an abstract is due for a conference that I wish to present at, to my friends and colleagues in my sister city, Perth Western Australia. I have never written with this colleague before, and this colleague has actually been my lecturer for a number of papers (= Units in Aussie terminology, what is it for everyone else??) at my chosen institution of higher learning.
The conference is this one, ALIA National Library & Information Technicians Conference and you will find the call for abstracts here.
The theme streams are:
- Professional Development (the individual)
- Professional Development (the profession)
- Client Services (the client)
I’m gonna go for option number one. Mainly because I want to dissect the term “professional”. I think.
Will update you on this later.
Again, abstract due in 7 days. Then again my maths isn’t so good, it could be sooner. How far away is the 1st of December?
