Over the last week, we have been exploring the idea of our future careers in relation to information literacy. In our team, we each wanted to pursue a different route - Anna is interested in public libraries, Melanie would like to investigate the architecture of libraries, Nancy would like to work in an art library, and I'd really enjoy a career in archiving. We wanted to ensure that we illustrated everyone's ambitions, and we designed a concept whereby we would link the SCONUL Pillars of Information Literacy with the types of services we felt we would be providing as information professionals in our future careers: to manage space, to scope resources, to plan the future, to identify users needs, to present tools for searching, to gather information, and to evaluate our own service provision.
Nancy led us with her creative flair, but Anna and Melanie had some hidden artistic talents, too! I think we really enjoyed the opportunity to get creative, and to get to know each other a little bit better.
