21
mishdaltonAs a relatively new librarian, most of my CPD tends to be learning from others as much as I can #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:20:42
22
danrholdenHi all! I’m a Faculty Librarian at Queens’s University Belfast. #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:21:27
23
acarbery@libfocus CPD so important for me. every opportunity both locally and externally is grabbed. We have to get out beyond 4 walls #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:21:57libfocus
24
sineadohigginsHi I'm Sinead, work @WatCityLibrary #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:22:02
25
danrholden@rugabela agreed. I do a lot of my CPD informally these days via Twitter. #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:22:55rugabela
26
mishdalton@acarbery @libfocus Totally agree. I do still feel there is always more I should be doing / reading / learning though! #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:23:57acarbery
27
LauraRooneyF#irelibchat Solo librarian so CPD like a lot of things gets squeezed in when & where it can21/06/2012 18:24:08
28
Jessica_BatesI find soc med is so important for informal cpd and keeping up to date with lib/info developments #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:24:17
29
libfocusRT @usernameerror As much time as I can because if I see something useful, I can get to use it in the library #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:24:33
30
acarbery@mishdalton @libfocus it's a full time job in itself :) #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:25:01mishdalton
31
sineadohiggins@danrholden @rugabela would agree - I was on maternity leave last year and found twitter invaluable for keeping up to date. #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:25:12danrholden
32
therealhatcherAnne from Dublin here - #irelibchat Tend to seek out opportunities for CPD myself and plug in - agree you have to get outside walls.21/06/2012 18:25:27
33
acarbery@Jessica_Bates completely agree. Social media has changed the opportunities for CPD #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:25:42Jessica_Bates
34
rugabela#irelibchat I've never stopped learning something new. Doing some courses, reading articles, learning on the Internet & at work21/06/2012 18:25:46
35
mishdalton@acarbery @libfocus Now that would be my dream library job - CPD-librarian lol! #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:26:03acarbery
36
Jessica_Bates“@acarbery: @mishdalton @libfocus it's a full time job in itself :) #irelibchat” definitely! So how do people prioritise? #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:26:09
37
sineadohiggins@danrholden @rugabela find twitter users very open to sharing ideas, best practice and interesting research #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:26:15danrholden
38
mishdalton@acarbery @Jessica_Bates No surprise that Twitter is my absolute fave CPD tool (!) but more about that in Q3 #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:26:50acarbery
39
rugabela@sineadohiggins @danrholden I agree!!! Now Internet is wonderful to learn without any effort at all!! #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:27:51sineadohiggins
40
acarbery@Jessica_Bates for many of us, our CPD is supposedly linked to performance management type stuff #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:28:14Jessica_Bates
41
LucyaughneyRT @LauraRooneyF: #irelibchat broke twitter - shh dont tell anyone21/06/2012 18:28:40
42
mishdalton@Jessica_Bates @acarbery @libfocus projects I'm working on usually dictate much of my CPD & its squeezed in as 'part of the job' #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:28:42Jessica_Bates
43
sineadohigginsRT @Jessica_Bates: I find soc med is so important for informal cpd and keeping up to date with lib/info developments #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:29:06
44
rugabela@sineadohiggins @danrholden And I have also found many people sharing their knowledge about all topics in the librarian world #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:29:07sineadohiggins
45
acarbery@Jessica_Bates in partial reality, personal interests and self admitted gaps in my skills drive my CPD priorities #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:29:10Jessica_Bates
46
jennibravoHi I'm Jennie I work between two branches of @WatCityLibrary #irelibchat”21/06/2012 18:29:15
47
cahalboyd@libfocus as a new-ish librarian CPD is v important to me to help learn/stay in touch with professionals, do it in spare time! #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:29:30libfocus
48
johnmac38it's also a good way to filter the internet, get links to good articles/posts #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:29:43
49
acarbery@mishdalton @jessica_bates @libfocus ditto. Me too :) #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:29:52mishdalton
50
Jessica_Bates“@acarbery: @Jessica_Bates in partial reality, ... #irelibchat” thanks & like the idea of partial reality :-)21/06/2012 18:30:38
51
rugabela@libfocus What about taking part in events? I went to a workshop on Europeana & learnt a lot about metadata #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:30:44libfocus
52
rph1981Twitter I find is handy way of keeping up to date but helps to follow only most useful ppl otherwise info overload #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:33:03
53
sineadohigginsI think seeking out courses both traditional LIS options and local opps important (may have to 'sell' to employer) is useful #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:33:05
54
mishdalton@rugabela Yes as much as I love Twitter, there are still great benefits of face to face networking #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:33:07rugabela
55
libfocusWelcome to those who have just joined #irelibchat. We are just moving on to Q2 now... #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:33:27
56
LauraRooneyF#irelibchat Most CPD tends to be 'after hours' & motivated by personal interest in keeping current or plugging gaps as/whan they arise21/06/2012 18:33:29
57
libfocusQ2. What LIS journals do you find most valuable for keeping up to date? There are so many! #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:34:13
58
rugabela@mishdalton Of course!!! But, Nowadays, I think all the options are good. #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:35:04mishdalton
59
mishdalton@libfocus I love @eblip myself - open access and a great mix of all areas #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:35:31libfocus
60
Jessica_BatesFirst Monday, Library Management, EBLIP for starters ... #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:36:16
61
sineadohiggins@mishdalton @rugabela always good to see other library's initiatives and how they have overcome problems #networking #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:36:23mishdalton
62
danrholden@mishdalton can’t beat face to face. Went to UCISA event this year. Good to go to events that aren’t just typical library ones. #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:37:24mishdalton
63
mishdalton@libfocus I do think we need to start publishing outside LIS journals and in discipline-specific journals more however #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:37:35libfocus
64
acarberyAs someone who tries to write for LIS journals, I'm all about them, BUT, does anyone see value in non LIS publications for CPD #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:37:44
65
rugabela@sineadohiggins @mishdalton Me too!! It's a great source of information when you don't know how to solve a problem!! #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:38:20sineadohiggins
66
sineadohigginsIn past there have been more opportunities for new librarians to work on short term projects (many Library Council funded) #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:38:56
67
mishdalton@acarbery Great minds :) I think we really need to integrate LIS more with what are users are reading / publishing in #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:39:48acarbery
68
FilletofMunsterSoc med vital for CPD, esp if lone worker. Have to fight for time for CDP but is that not part of ur annual job evals? #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:40:23
69
mishdalton@acarbery otherwise we are just talking to ourselves! #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:41:01acarbery
70
Jessica_Bates@acarbery have you tried New Review of Academic Librarianship? #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:41:37acarbery
71
LauraRooneyF#irelibchat CPD no great loyalty to 1 journal take what i can where I can - First Monday good for tech stuff - blogs increasingly valuable21/06/2012 18:42:20
72
acarberyI deal with #infolit as part of my job Education pub's are important to me (as a teacher, & also working in academia full stop) #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:42:37
73
danrholden@acarbery “definitely. I work in engineering so would look at IEE titles and education in engineering titles” < sorry IEEE #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:57:09acarbery
74
Jessica_Batesdef think journals outside our field are important (soc sc, comms, comp sci & mgmt) - but really hard to find the time. #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:57:42
75
libfocusTime for Q3. Which social apps & tools do you find good for CPD? Do you find social media effective e.g. 23 things? #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 18:59:04
76
mishdaltonI am tempted to say I hate Twitter after tonight's crash but I still love it - invaluable as a discovery tool #irelibchat

77
Jessica_Bates#irelibchat I have to go in a sec. thanks to @libfocus21/06/2012 19:00:54
78
libfocus@Jessica_Bates Thanks for joining in - hopefully less technical issues second time around #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:02:22Jessica_Bates
79
Jessica_Bates#irelibchat keen 2 hear what ppl think is role of uni courses to provide cpd. Feel free to get in touch. Running CPD courses at UU. Nite all21/06/2012 19:02:41
80
johnmac38twitter mostly, linkedin rarely, facebook never #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:04:27
81
acarberyTwitter blogs f'book all good for connectivity (does that automat. infer CPD?) Want to say LInkedin but mostly thats tumbleweed #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:05:14
82
mishdalton@Jessica_Bates I would like to see Uni courses providing more technical /specialist CPD - programming, data curation #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:05:59Jessica_Bates
83
sineadohiggins@danrholden It can be bit disconcerting to see how little people know about role of libraries #notgreatatselfpromotation #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:06:03danrholden
84
mishdaltonI find the idea of CPD23 things a little too rigid - love social tools because they are so flexible / on demand #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:08:00
85
rugabela@acarbery @libfocus E-mailing discussion lists are also a good tool to learn and share information & knowledge #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:08:38acarbery
86
sineadohigginsKeep meaning to do 23 things - anyone doing it? Is it useful? #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:08:49
87
danrholden@sineadohiggins yes, definitely. Otherwise we will be ignored or bypassed. Or other areas will do what we do (but not as well) #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:10:21sineadohiggins
88
johnmac38@sineadohiggins Had a go last year but didn't finish it. Great idea - you can take what you want from it I guess #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:10:54sineadohiggins
89
mishdalton@rugabela Great point re discussion lists - love the LAI HSLG list and various List-Servs #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:11:08rugabela
90
danrholden@johnmac38 I’m exactly the same. #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:11:25johnmac38
91
LauraRooneyF#irelibchat been dipping in & out of #CPD23 - have used most of the things in some capacity but have picked up a few new tools to try21/06/2012 19:11:33
92
sineadohigginsDefinitely twitter, kept my facebook personal, not sure about LinkedIn - good for connecting but not sure what to do next #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:11:39
93
rugabela@sineadohiggins @libfocus I went to a workshop on Europeana last Monday & I learnt a lot about metadata #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:12:01sineadohiggins
94
acarbery@rugabela @libfocus I don't use list serves as much as I should (both as reader and contributor) #irelibchat Agree its good to get quick ans21/06/2012 19:12:20rugabela
95
johnmac38@mishdalton Know what you mean - librarian asked me recently did I "do" social media, as if it were an assignment. #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:12:27mishdalton
96
sineadohiggins@johnmac38 did you blog about it? #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:12:37johnmac38
97
acarbery@johnmac38 @mishdalton I'm amazed at librarians who refuse to even acknowledge social networks. Info is our business people! #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:14:21johnmac38
98
libfocusMoving swiftly on to Q4 due to the over-run. Barriers to CPD? (apart from Twitter crashes :)) #irelibchat #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:15:05
99
rugabela@acarbery @libfocus I often use them.I can keep updated about courses,events...But your e-mail must be always organised!! #irelibchat21/06/2012 19:15:51acarbery

johnmac38I consult listservs alot, the archives of autocat and oclc-cat are a great resource for cataloguers.#irelibchat21/06/2012 19:16:25
