Cases in point: June guest posts

One thing that makes starting community engagement projects in special collections challenging is the lack of accessible written examples of good practice. 

To improve the situation I have asked some librarians who are doing successful outreach to blog about their work – to provide ideas and encouragement for others who want to do something similar.

The first three guest blogs will be posted throughout June.

The Parker Library, Corpus Christi College, CambridgeSuzanne Paul, Parker Sub-Librarian at The Parker Library, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge will tell us about her collaboration with the city’s Blue Badge Guides.

Globe in the Library, St John's College, OxfordStewart Tiley, Librarian at St John’s College, Oxford will write about providing visits to school groups through the College’s Schools Liaison Officer.

The Old Library, St John's College, CambridgeRyan Cronin, Librarian’s Assistant at St John’s College, Cambridge will write about taking part in a story sacks project with Cambridgeshire schools and museums.

Although the methods are varied, you may notice there is an Oxbridge college library bias here. Hopefully a lot that they write will be transferable and I hope other engaging librarians will volunteer. Please email me if you’d like to guest blog!

  1. Ooh, exciting! Looking forward to it, particularly Ryan – I heard a bit about the story sacks idea a while ago and I’m glad to see it’s developed/ing into something.
