Tweet from @ALIANational
I had no idea it was Library and Information Services Week until I went on Twitter today. A WHS course for work means I missed my TAFE Monday, so I would’ve had no idea otherwise. There’s a pretty decent benefit right there!
I also read in my Twitter feed that today is Library Technicians Day. I have my fingers and toes crossed that I will one day soon be a real live Library Technician, so I will celebrate this soon to be special day for me heartily by reorganising my books into Dewey classification and turning our kitchen table into a circulation desk. The kids can be my book lovin’ customers. I may even bake cupcakes and leave them in the tearoom for the staff (me!). See, the benefits to libraries using Twitter get better and better!
And to liven things in my Twitter feed, I follow some not quite factual but nonetheless entertaining Tweeters such as this gem –
There you go. Without libraries using Twitter, I wouldn’t know how
much hard work special this week is for Librarians. I wouldn’t be eating cupcakes for dinner. And I wouldn’t be wondering how many Librarians actually are concerned they will be replaced by 3D images of themselves. There is so much information that can be shared in 140 characters (plus a decent pic to catch the eye) or less. Tweet tweet.
